Waterfront Developments

Crafting a waterfront development presents an opportunity to discover and embrace the unique purpose of a site. By establishing the program based on the site’s own potential and constraints, we create developments that bring inherent long-term value. Whether creating an ecological sanctuary, a residential development with direct access to the beach, or a retail and dining ground plane with a boardwalk buffer, we guide our clients to maximize site potential and economic benefits while enhancing the social and ecological integrity of the site.

We work side-by-side with our clients to refine the program mix and design aesthetic for the development based on the unique factors of the waterfront typology – open sea, beachfront, lakefront, or manmade. We layer appropriate typologies that build and play off each other to create dynamic destination developments that are memorable and lasting.
