Another award for Pier Park

The accolades continue to pile up for Westminster Pier Park.

Three national organizations have named it winner of its 2014 National Urban Design Award for civic design projects. The $25-million project opened in 2012 along New Westminster’s riverfront. It was chosen by a jury made up of members from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, the Canadian Institute of Planners, and the Canadian Society of Landscape Artists.

The jury said Westminster Pier Park “responds beautifully to the desire of giving new life to a derelict brownfield site.”

Amongst several awards it has garnered, the project received an International Downtown Association award in New York last year.
