This presentation will focus on design that takes a fresh look at engagement of the water’s edge and harbor activities into waterfront transformation efforts. The presentation and subsequent discussion will explore a range of waterfront activity types, from active and passive recreation to cruise and ferry operations. Approaches used by communities to assess the right fit and balance of waterfront users, incorporation into broader urban systems, coastal resiliency, and strategies followed to achieve long-term social and economic gains from their presence will be outlined.
