Comments Off on London’s first ‘High Line’ park could transform an abandoned railway in Camden Town

New York’s iconic High Line is inspiring other cities to repurpose and green-up disused elevated railway lines. Representing residents, businesses and community groups of Camden Town district in north London, local business group Camden Town Unlimited organized a crowdfunding campaign to help transform a portion of an old railway line connecting Camden Town and King’s Cross into a vibrant green space. The Camden Highline would run for nearly a kilometer, linking the world-famous Camden Market with the recently redeveloped King’s Cross area by a 10-minute walk. Camden Town Unlimited teamed up with Network Rail to figure out the technical feasibility of the project, and is now looking to start construction.

Now we’re putting our money where our mouth is to make this happen,” said Camden Town Unlimited Chief Executive Simon Pitkeathley about the campaign. “We invite anyone who wants to see a New York-style Highline here in London , whether you live and work in Camden or are a visitor to the area, to donate what you can to help make this idea a reality.” The new crowdfunding campaign will help finance events and workshops aimed at bringing this project to life. It will run for 100 days or whenever it reaches its £40k target. + Camden Highline crowdfunding campaign Via World Architecture News
