Remaking the Urban Waterfront

Waterfronts provide a natural opportunity to make a memorable urban place, yet many of them remain obsolete or underused. Remaking the Urban Waterfront, written by expert architects and planners, explains the importance of and challenges inherent in transforming waterfronts, the key design issues, zoning and land use regulations, environmental obstacles, development incentives, and how the public and private sectors must work together to create spectacular new waterfronts. Case studies of both small- and large-scale projects describe how mixed-use, residential, retail/entertainment, commercial/ industrial, civic buildings, and parks were developed in the United States, Europe, and Australia.
