Arbutus Greenway Improvements

Project Value: $10 million
Architects: PWL Landscape Architects
Project Status: Completed 2021

As part of the PWL team, MAKE provided project management and design scheduling services for the Arbutus Greenway improvement project in zones 3 & 8. The greenway is one of several walking and biking paths to encourage people to use active and sustainable modes of transportation. Our team acted as the client interface and management lead, allowing the design team to focus creatively and technically on the design.

The project, which the City of Vancouver started in 2016, has a temporary asphalt path and attracts thousands of people every day, providing people an opportunity to walk, bike, roll from False Creek to the Fraser River. In light of its success, in 2018, City Council endorsed enhancing the path to give people of all ages and abilities places to gather and rest and enjoy the surrounding landscape. The Arbutus Greenway is a defining element of Vancouver’s urban landscape as a vibrant and beautiful public space for walking, cycling, and by streetcar.
