The South Central Waterfront Initiative will promote a vision and provide 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 located just south of downtown. Here is a map of the area.
