Seattle: Turenscape win the Seattle's Hing Hay Park Design

2013-11-17 Source:seattle.gov/parks
The design team of SvR plus Turenscape has been selected for Hing Hay Park expansion. SvR is a local firm with great credentials for local projects, and Turenscape is a Beijing-based firm that will be partnering with them to bring an international perspective to the work. This team will provide professional services to renovate the existing post office site into an expansion of Hing Hay Park.
Seattle Parks and Recreation values the community's commitment and support to our parks and green spaces. One of our goals is to actively engage and build relationships with Seattle's diverse population. For most capital projects Seattle Parks and Recreation typically follows a three meeting format for public involvement. With this project, we'll also include a survey, and outreach at local events and meetings.
A group has formed a “Friends of Hing Hay Park” to help with fundraising and programming in both the existing park before construction and after the expanded park is completed.
This project will partially renovate the existing park, but primarily, it will develop the adjacent post office site acquired with 2000 Pro Parks Levy. See Acquisition for Hing Hay Expansion
