The project will also feature a six foot wide promenade with benches along the waterfront. The northern end of the promenade will feature a small “wharf-like” area at the northern end of the promenade that projects over the water. Some areas adjacent to the promenade will be planted with shrubs.
Anticipated Completion: Spring 2014
