thinc design was awarded the improvements associated with the Glasgow Street Parkette. These improvements are integrated with Streetscape Improvements on Glasgow Street and improvements to the landscape of Cecil Community Centre.
Currently the park suffers from a disconnect with Cecil Street. The intent of the design to create a continuous park system connecting Cecil Street, Glasgow Street and the parkette. A main unifying factor is the roadway paving and an integrated coloured band winding through the space.
Some of the elements include: new curved seating, lighting, signage, an informal performance area, new planting, creation of a shared road space and placeholders for public art.
The project is starting construction in spring 2018, with an expected late summer completion.
