Vancouver Looks To Viaduct Teardowns

Echoes of San Franscisco's Embarcadero and Milwaukee's Park East:

In the meantime, cities around the world have been catching up to our way of thinking, and some are passing us. Many are rejecting new freeways, and even tearing down existing freeways, reconnecting their cities to their waterfronts. Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Seoul Korea, and well over 100 more cities have shown this city-building boldness. Increasingly it's not bold at all. It's just smart .

The teardown of the Park East has been a qualified success.

I think the only thing keeping it from being a complete success has been the economic meltdown, which has hit the construction industry the hardest.
