The South Central Waterfront Initiative will promote a vision and implement a cohesive set of recommendations, tools, and programs to guide public and private development over the next 20-plus years. The goal is to ensure that, as this area inevitably changes, every increment of change will contribute to making a great new district that:
Establish a lively, attractive pedestrian environment.
Expand open space and create great public spaces.
Enhance connections to and along the waterfront.
Include 20% new housing units as affordable.
The South Central Waterfront (SCW) encompasses 118 acres, comprised of 32 separate properties. The SCW is located along Lady Bird Lake, just south of downtown. Here is a map of the area.
