Connect Landscape Architecture is Excited to be
Part of YVR’s 20-Year Expansion Plan
For over 30 years we have worked together with YVR cultivating an award winning international ‘experience-based’ brand. We are proud to contribute successful and sustainable design enhancements improving the overall visitor and employee experience by car, plane and transit.
We are currently playing key roles on the following significant infrastructure projects:
Pier D Terminal Expansion (Completion 2021 Spring)
Creation of an island, tide pool, and forest experience welcoming passengers and providing a calming place of respite. Tide pools will simulate high and low tides. The forest will be open to the sky and will feature installation of 30 foot tall conifer trees!
With: Kasian, Grout McTavish Architects, and PCL Constructors
CORE – Infrastructure Utility and Parkade (Completion 2021)
Reinforcing our place in the ‘River Delta’ – Replacement of existing at grade value lot parking with a visitor landscape experience. The project will integrate a geothermal plant and parkade structure to provide a more sustainable heating and cooling supply for the terminal. Rainwater will be harvested and collected for re-use.
With: Stantec, Francl Architects, and Ellis Don
We are also currently working on or completed the following projects with YVR:
