THE CAMDEN HIGHLINE IS COMING
London may be getting a brand new park and our very own version of NYC’s High Line. There have been a few attempts at it before but this latest project, the Camden Highline, looks like it might actually come off. The idea is to convert a 1.2km section of a disused railway line between Camden and King’s Cross into an elevated park eight metres above the ground, with green space and links for pedestrians and cyclists.
And now it’s in the next phase of development as the multidisciplinary team led by James Corner Field Operations has won the design bid, so now consultations with the local community can begin and the planning process can get going. There’s a very loose completion date of 2024 so we’ve still got a while to wait before this one opens but it’s moving in the right direction.
