LA Studios

Occupying a 14-acre site in downtown Los Angeles, the LA studios redevelopment represents a fundamental shift in mixed-use urban design in Southern California. Centred on a pedestrian oriented ‘main street’ comprised of local serving retail and employment spaces, the studio site aims to accommodate all types of housing tenures and incomes while mixing unique film-related employment and local commercial activity to coalesce in a vibrant and active community.

Designed around people-oriented streets with cars well accommodated in the background, the intent is to create a real neighbourhood, with opportunities to walk to all basic daily needs. Comprised of over 6 million sq.ft. of development, the plan represents one of the most significant developments in the US.

River Mile Denver

Representing one of the most significant Urban redevelopments in the United States, the Rivermile seeks to re-connect Denver to it’s river edge while providing a publicly focused, sustainable and walkable urban environment. Focussed on a approximately 3 acre central park and gathering space, the development seeks to create a thriving mixed-use urban district unlike any other. With approximately 15 million square feet of development, a variety of walkable experiences characterize the spaces between buildings and along the River’s edge.

All of the mile long river’s edge is publicly accessible, highlighted by pedestrian bridges over the South Platte River. Roads have been carefully designed as pedestrian first environments and all parking and loading is accommodated on building sites. Alan Boniface helped lead the project for Revesco in partnership with SAR of Denver.

River District OCP

River District, also known as East Fraser Lands, is embedded in layers of rich history, and meaning. Our design for the Waterfront Precinct seeks to unite the community with the Fraser River; making the riverfront an inseparable part of the East Fraser Lands experience. As the ‘soul’ of the project, the Waterfront Precinct includes the pedestrian-oriented High Street (now named River District Crossing), that gently curves towards the water, opening views out to the river, and terminates at a highly active and unique waterfront area.

The precinct contains the tallest buildings in the East Fraser Lands, making it the focal point of the community. All these buildings feature a mix of uses and a variety of housing tenure options including affordable, rental and market housing units. The Community Centre local shops and services, waterfront retail, riverfront parks and plazas, form part of this area and are key components of this vibrant waterfront.
