Crown Street Sustainable Streetscape and Fish Habitat Enhancement Project

Crown street, city of van - crowd scene #2

The City of Vancouver has undertaken an exciting new approach to residential street design and rainwater management. Vancouver's Crown Street has become the city's first Sustainable Streetscape. The design uses innovative ideas to integrate transportation into an environmentally sensitive setting. The Sustainable Street demonstration project has provided a design that can be used as an inspiration or template for future street improvement projects.

The University of British Columbia has referenced “green street designs such as the City of Vancouver's Crown Street” as an inspiration to “push the limits of innovation and provide a showcase of sustainability.” For the complete story, please click here.
