McLean Park Rental Housing Project, Vancouver, British Columbia (1960-1963)
This project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for the McLean Park Rental Housing Project, a low-income housing development spread across four city blocks in the Strathcona neighbourhood, Vancouver. Oberlander worked on this project in the early 1960s. The architectural firm in charge of the project was Underwood McKinley Cameron. The housing development "was comprised of a nine-storey apartment building with one-bedroom apartments and studios, and a series of three- and four-storey maisonettes."  As landscape architect, Oberlander worked on the site planning, grading and drainage, as well as the planting plan. She also designed recreational spaces for adults and children.
The project series contains five photographs of the project, specifications, a plant list and a reprographic copy of a working drawing.
