NELSON Mandela Bay’s Baakens Valley could soon be transformed into the likes of Central Park in New York City.

Giving a glimpse of what the future Baakens River precinct could look like yesterday was consultant Peter Stark, who presented the first draft of a conceptual framework plan to interested parties at a briefing of the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA).

Stark, who was also involved in the Statue of Freedom competition in the Bay a few years ago, said the idea of a conceptual framework was to give a sense of what might be in the precinct.

    We have been reading about these,’ Pie in the Sky” plans for years and nothing ever comes to fruition! If I had a hundred rands for every plan I have read about I would be rich and there would be all kinds of exotic structures all over the city!
