River Green 2 is the first post-Olympic development parcel of the River Green / Oval Village in Richmond, BC and spearheads development in this important waterfront site. Parcel 2 is the first phase of PFS Studio’s ongoing participation in Richmonds redevelopment of its waterfront. Working with James KM Cheng Architects on this mid-density, high-end, multi-family housing project, PFS Studio developed a sophisticated landscape palette that reflects the convergence of the new community with its Fraser River context.
Expansive semi-private courtyards of dramatic waterscapes and landscaped islands transition from the streets through the interior courts and back to the public dyke pathway along the river. A major public greenway connection through the project to the dyke public pathway system includes a significant public art component.
