BQE Enhancement

BQE Enhancement

In this 2010 proposal in response to a study prompted by the Economic Development Corporation (EDC), a collaboration between Kiss + Cathcart Architects & Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects looked at ways to improve the BQE underpass. The issues highest on the agenda were developing east-west access over the underpass and controlling noise and pollution emanating from the depressed highway. The scheme suggests the possibility of removing the highway from view at street level, generating electricity for the surrounding area, and even an opportunity for new retail space. A list of related documents can be found here, on the EDC’s website.
