The transformation of Jellicoe Street is part of the larger revitalization project of the Wynyard Quarter, from an industrial port area to an active and livable waterfront neighborhood. The area is located on the edge of the city, close to the harbor, on contaminated land.
Public space has been designed to catalyze development and foster the conversion of old hangars and warehouses into a cultural and recreational strip.
The street was transformed from an industrial service road to a lush pedestrian boulevard.
The innovative approach that integrated sustainability measures has become the new benchmark for citywide streetplanting strategies.
