Find out what we’ve been up to at Highline HQ
We want to start by saying…
A BIG thank you to Camden Town Brewery
Crowdfunding, a history with railway arches, and, er, a love of beer are just a few things we have in common with our pals up the, r̶o̶a̶d̶ track (they are one stop on the Overground!)…
We can’t thank them enough for organising such a fun Tank Party over the weekend and for their generous support of the project! We love you guys — thank you so much. x
(And shout out to all of YOU for coming and drinking so much beer — 20p from every pint sold over the weekend went to the project — so big up yourselves!)
What have we been doing?
We’ve been busy meeting with *Deep breath* TfL, the Deputy Mayor for Transport and the Mayor’s Walking and Cycling Czar, Camden, the GLA, Network Rail, politicians, possible funders, landowners, resident and business groups, architects, engineers and various consultants all to do with achieving the funding and permissions (planning, landowner approval) etc. to make the Camden Highline happen. We. Are. On. It. and hope to be able to share more news soon.
We’ve carried out further work (Thank you Barney and Alex) building on the benefits analysis to quantify the positive impact it can make for Camden and London.
And we’ve been in New York and met with the team behind the New York High Line.
And a few photos below…
We’ve spoken at lots of events with community and resident groups, business and at various conferences… (If you’d like to find out more about the project then send us an email: email@example.com).
Ahead of Open House The Telegraph, Icon Magazine and Horticulture Week wrote about the project. A BIG thank you to everyone who braved the weather over the weekend, we just about survived walking a marathon and have more tours organised.
Come and meet the team, take a look at the model, see the very cool drone video, and hear the latest progress… Sign up here! Go, go go!
And following his 2016 Manhattan gallery show “On The High Line”, we spoke to photographer and author of the upcoming High Line Book, David Goodman about the inspiration for his next project, The High Line Book.
“The High Line Book is my photographic love letter to the High Line. It will include all the best photos I have taken of the High Line over the past 5 years, as well as real stories from visitors, neighbours, tourists, and celebrities who all enjoy this revolutionary park.”
