This 16-acre master plan, designed in collaboration with !melk, received Finalist commendations in its invited competition, 2017.

The site’s previous industrial use inspired the notion of a “smart landscape.” Pollution is removed, healthy soil added, storm water filtered, and alternative energy sourced. New local grasses, plants, gravel, and bushes, introduce a vast range of textures and colors to the waterfront. Combined with the renovation of Main Street's historic armory, the master plan also serves an educational purpose, as schools are invited to programs in which children learn methods of nourishing the planet. Through a newly introduced boardwalk, mixed-use housing communities, new hotels, and sustainable lifestyle, the waterfront connects back to the city, and reinvigorates the economy.
