In partnership with Halcrow, we have been commissioned by the Homes and Communities Agency to design a new urban park in Middlesbrough. The park is situated next to the iconic Transporter Bridge and will become a central feature and destination within Middlehaven. As a catalyst it will help bring a step change in the perception of this major regeneration area in in the heart of Middlesbrough. As part of this commission we will also assist the HCA and Middlesbrough Council to undertake the Urban Pioneers Project, which promotes a series of sites surrounding the park for Custom Built development. The Urban Pioneers Project is an important strand of the delivery strategy of the Middlehaven Framework which was developed by Urban Initiatives Studio during 2011/12.
