Great Brownfield Redevelopments

The Canadian Urban Institute presented its yearly 'Brownie' awards last week, honoring the best brownfield redevelopment projects in the nation.

Waterfront reclamations were popular, including the City of Vancouver's Southeast False Creek project, which was voted best overall.

"Ontario's Collingwood Shipyards Redevelopment - which also creates a mixed-use waterfront community by FRAM Building Group - CSL Equity Investments, and Terraprobe Consulting Engineers, was given accolades for best large-scale project. The Jury's Choice Award went to La Promenade Samuel-De Champlain by the Commission de la Capitale Nationale du Quebec and included marshland restoration and greening of the waterfront."
