Ken Haines

Principal


As a principal of Hargreaves Associates, Ken has overseen a diverse portfolio of waterfront, urban design and public park projects with a particular interest in the transformation of challenging urban sites into vital public amenities that reflect and shape our culture - landscapes that have a strong presence in the conscience of the community, whether they are vibrant and expressive or quiet and deferential, projects that wrestle with issues such as reclaiming contaminated land for productive use, restoring damaged habitat, revitalizing abandoned or underutilized post-industrial sites, reconnecting communities to their waterfronts, catalyzing economic development and fostering sustainability.
