21st Street Overlook


A new overlook/fishing pier is planned to reach out from 21st Street toward views downriver. The foundation of the overlook will be a unique onsite relic—a historic crane foundation that sits in the river. The design of the overlook will highlight this special feature. The focal point at 21st Street will also ramp down to connect to the existing marina alongside the site, providing water access as well as a connected riverfront trail at the upper level.

Because of its wide right of way, the redesign of 21st Street offers a unique opportunity to integrate stormwater treatment into the streetscape design. 21st Street has the potential to become a testing ground and a model of stormwater best management practices in the urban context of the Strip District.
