Alexandria Waterfront Alexandria, VA
The Alexandria Waterfront project is a 20 year vision for a 1.2 mile stretch of riverfront that has been disconnected from the city and compromised by past industrial use. The OLIN team worked collaboratively with the community to shape a plan that is designed by and for Alexandrians and is deeply rooted in history and culture of the city. The waterfront plan creates a variety of unique outdoor rooms along the Potomac River, for both passive and active use, linked by a continuous pedestrian promenade. The design integrates flood mitigation infrastructure that also serves as park amenity space. The re-imagined waterfront meets the recreational and civic needs of a diverse population, restores natural habitat for native flora and fauna, and offers a vision that is economically viable, maintainable and implementable in phases over time.
Will was the Project Manager for the Alexandria Waterfront Masterplan while at OLIN from 2013 until its approval in 2014.
