The Shore - City of North Vancouver


Shore Projects Ltd. is pleased to invite Artist and/or Artist Teams to submit design proposals for the creation of three different public art works that will be included in 'The Shore', a new residential development located at 720 West 2nd Street in the City of North Vancouver, between Marine Drive, Fell Avenue, and East 2nd Street Connector and Bewicke Avenue. Deadline for all three Artist Calls is August 15, 2013, 4pm.

The City of North Vancouver’s vision for the redevelopment of its former City Works Yard site is to develop the area into a gateway precinct of interrelated, livable, neighbourly residential and mixed use developments, highly accessible to the public and with community amenities that include a park and trail system for Mosquito Creek.

There are three (3) separate public art calls for design proposals for The Shore, each with a different conceptual framework, theme, and budget. The Public Art Projects are entitled: Crossing, Arrival and Reflection.
