Creating a Destination

In the Strip District, the landscape design for the riverfront between 11th Street and 27th Street envisions a public park, a new waterfront café with dock, an expanded marina, and a series of riverfront overlooks and fishing piers to draw residents, workers, and visitors down to the water and provide new waterborne activities. A community plaza at 11th Street will offer activities for the neighborhood, with a flexible gathering space, terraced seating facing a small stage, and views of the Fort Wayne Railroad Bridge.

While comfortable streetscaping is planned for all streets in the Strip District, there may be additional opportunities to integrate regenerative stormwater conveyance strategies into the design of streets that are beautiful, functional, and express the sustainability goals of the project.
