More about the reGENERATE Ideas Challenge

The City of New Westminster, committing to address the housing crisis and taking bold action on climate, introduced a planner's challenge for the area around the 22nd Street Station. Submissions were submitted from organisations, students, and community members. Submissions explored opportunities to:

  • Create and expand spaces for public gathering, including green space with ecological and climate adaptation functions, as well as indoor gathering spaces where neighbours could connect, support each other’s wellbeing, and advance climate action
  • Promote local renewable energy generation, such as through wind, solar, or even capturing kinetic energy along pathways
  • Redevelop the station and its immediate surroundings into a mixed-use hub that could serve daily needs of residents
  • Support a range of housing typologies, from high rise, to mixed-use low rise, courtyard orientations, townhouses, and multiplexes
  • Support sustainable transportation modes by expanding bike and pedestrian infrastructure, or closing select roads to cars
