The focus over the past decade has been a combination of design excellence, innovative and sustainable development, as well as public accessibility to the waterfront. With the increase in public transit, open spaces, and beautiful developments (such as Pier 27), the organization is well on its way to reaching their goals. Next up? A project that’s designed to make use of these public spaces and showcase the city’s greatest creative talent: the Animating Our Waterfront program. Continue reading →

We’re currently in the midst of a 4 month campaign – ‘Reclaim the Name’ – which began as an open call to the community to contribute ideas to name the space. The campaign is currently entering Phase Two – with more excitement expected to follow. Continue reading →
