The Vision

The vision of CV Link is for the project to meet four design principles that serve as guidelines toward project goals and ideals for the Coachella Valley. CVAG along with the design team working on the project have endeavored to fulfill that vision. Take a look at the renderings and we think you will agree that the CV Link will meet the four design principles essential to the success of the project:

The vision of CV Link is for the project to meet four design principles that serve as guidelines toward project goals and ideals for the Coachella Valley. CVAG along with the design team working on the project have endeavored to fulfill that vision. Take a look at the renderings and we think you will agree that the CV Link will meet the four design principles essential to the success of the project:

Foster Connection

  • Establish the CV Link as a physical connection between neighborhoods, communities, and amenities
  • Bond people to destinations, culture, and the environment as well as to other people in the Coachella Valley
  • Make access to the parkway effortless, taking advantage of existing road intersections and adjacencies, to grant easy access to patrons residing on both sides of the Whitewater Storm Channel

Enhance Function

  • Add new use to an existing under-utilized infrastructural element by creating a left-over space into a community and valley-wide amenity
  • Maintain existing stormwater channel capacity while adding a new multi-modal transportation pathway on the edge of the channel
  • Serve as an alternative means of transportation by which one may commute and access local amenities and destinations

Distinct Destination

  • Become a distinct destination within the Coachella Valley by creating a unique parkway experience that blends recreation and infrastructure
  • Serve as a means of transportation between destinations, as well as become a destination within itself
  • Make for an interesting experience for residents to use to commute to work as well as become a premiere destination for exercise and recreation

Make It Iconic

  • Be an innovative destination in functionality, design concepts and form
  • Create unique relationships, both programmatic and spatial, that creates an architectural language that is inherently identifiable as the CV Link
  • Support intuitive wayfinding and use that takes advantage of existing opportunities (views, elevation changes, etc.), creating a unique and memorable experience
