Dallas Welcomes Vancouver’s Famous Urban Designer Back to Town

During the first week of the Vancouver Olympics 2010, the commentators showed scenes from the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada and cited that it has been named "Top City of the Americas" in Condé Nast Traveler magazine's 2009 Readers' Choice Awards, the world's "Most Livable City" by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in 2005, and a Top 100 World Destination pick in TripAdvisor's 2008 Travelers’ Choice Awards.  Vancouver offers travelers both outstanding opportunities for outdoor adventure and the sophisticated amenities of a world-class city.

Understanding the success of Vancouver and its urban planning design is extremely important to note, because Larry Beasley, the former director of the Vancouver Planning Department and world-renowned urban planner was in Dallas working with the City of Dallas’ CityDesign Studio in February.  His focus is on West Dallas and the development of a new vision and plan for the area.

Over a two day period, Larry Beasley led groups of City staff, West Dallas business and civic leaders, and property owners in a dream session to look at the outcomes from the initial dream session that was held last year, review West Dallas Investments’ objectives, take a broad view of West Dallas, and to look toward urban structure designs for that part of Dallas.

In the months ahead, Larry Beasley will work in Dallas four times a year bringing his expertise and sense of how to incorporate the best of the urban mission and natural environment to design and ultimately create magical places for people to work, live, and play.

The Dallas CityDesign Studio fronts City Hall Plaza on the second floor at 1500 Marilla, 2B South, and the windows provide inspirational views of the reflecting pool and the gorgeous 1978 Henry Moore bronze sculpture designed specifically for the plaza of the I. M. Pei designed City Hall building.
