Taking inspiration from the sites industrial past and its’ maritime connections, Fletcher Studio created an engaging public space consisting of an elevated boardwalk that moves through the space connecting two plazas at either end of the linear site. Private roof top areas (on podium) are accessible to building residents and overlook the linear public space below, providing seating areas, planter walls, cable trellises and an outdoor kitchen gathering space.
