Christopher Hume of the Toronto Star has a recent column on the competition results for a new park at the foot of Jarvis Street.

Ah, the waterfront, the waterfront. Does one dare believe in what it could be; or does one succumb to the cynicism of the day? The latter may be tempting, but it’s too easy.

Besides, there is reason for optimism, especially when one sees the final-round proposals for the Jarvis St. Slip. Chosen through an invitational design competition, the three schemes are so good, each one should be built. That’s unlikely, of course, but one can always hope.

Check  out the results here  – and remember them for the SFU City Program discussion on the state of Vancouver’s architecture and urban design on February 1. Details here.

There’s a video with the story on the Star’s website:
