Description

Architect and Urban Designer Ken Greenberg has played a leading role on a broad range of assignments in highly diverse urban settings in North America, and Europe. Much of his work focuses on the rejuvenation of downtowns, waterfronts, neighborhoods, and campus master planning. His projects include the award-winning Saint Paul on the Mississippi Development Framework, the Brooklyn Bridge Park on the East River in New York, the East River waterfront in Lower Manhattan, the Fan Pier in Boston, the Southwest and Southeast Waterfronts in Washington, D.C., the Vision Plan for the District of Columbia and the preparation of a Master Plan for the NoMA District (North of Massachusetts Avenue) in Washington D.C., Kendall Square and NorthPoint Master Plans in Cambridge, the Downtown Hartford Economic and Urban Design Action Strategy, the preparation of a Strategic Framework for Midtown Detroit surrounding the Detroit Medical Center and Wayne State University, the implementation of the Harbourfront Master Plan and Plans for the new FilmPort (Toronto Film Studios complex) on the Toronto Waterfront and an interim role as Chief Planner at the BRA (Boston Redevelopment Authority) for the City of Boston including oversight of the Crossroads Initiative which builds on the 'Big Dig' and the Rose Kennedy Greenway. In each city, with each project, his strategic, consensus-building approach has led to coordinated planning and a renewed focus on urban design.

Current efforts include plans for the Lower Don Lands, a comprehensive plan for the mouth of the Don River where it enters Toronto Harbour, a Strategic Master Plan for Boston University, plans for the renewal of Grange Park, in association with the Art Gallery of Ontario, plans for the adaptive re-use of the Hearn, a decommissioned Power Plant in the Toronto Port Lands, the redevelopment of the former US Postal Service site on the Fort Point Channel in Boston, the renewal of the Inner Belt lands in Somerville, Mass., plans for the Calgary Riverwalk along the Bow and Oxbow Rivers and implementing the Master Plan for the renewal of Regent Park, a major public housing project in Toronto.
