    One of the great challenges in waterfront development is the active engagement of the waters edge and harbor

    area into the surrounding community. Too often, planning efforts focus on the transformation of adjacent uplands

    and miss opportunities for integration of waterfront activities that support commerce, transport, and recreation.

    Jurisdictional control, project complexity, regulatory hurtles, and limited financial gains are frequently cited as

    primary limiting factors to fully tapping into the waters edge. And the value added through incorporation of

    various waterfront uses is frequently overlooked.

    At LandDesign, waterfront planning and design is not simply a process, but an art form related to creating

    authentic places that are true to their history, environment, and economic and social potential. Our teams

    experience and depth enable us to provide a complete range of waterfront services for communities, ports,

    and industries tied to the waters edge.

    While an extraordinary site certainly contributes to the success of a waterfront project, the creation of a truly unique placerequires the desire to embrace the natural setting and integrate it into a human-scaled setting that engages the senses.This is achieved at National Harbor, an ambitious 300-acre urban mixed-use project perched along the Potomac River inPrince Georges County, Maryland. With the first phase completed, the plan for National Harbor will ultimately encompassnearly 500,000 square feet of office space, 2,500 residential units, 4,000 hotel rooms, a convention center, luxury resortwith marina, and over one million square feet of retail, dining and entertainment offerings aligned with scenic parks, publicspaces and a magnificent collection of public art. National Harbor is oriented toward the river, with the street patternand building placement designed to provide physical and visual access. Significant views and prominent landmarks areframed, including famous monuments around the Washington DC metro area. The public can take full advantage of theriver since the 1.5 mile waterfront is accessed by Harborwalk, a trail that is part of the Potomac Heritage National ScenicTrail, as well as a marina, a beach, an outdoor multipurpose stage area and two public piers.
