The Riverline will be a nature trail and greenway that links downtown Buffalo to the Buffalo River.
The Western New York Land Conservancy is developing The Riverline based on a vision created by the community. The Riverline will transform the elevated former DL&W rail corridor along the Buffalo River into a string of vibrant and engaging experiences in nature that everyone can enjoy—right in the city, only minutes from downtown.
The Riverline will be an inspiring gathering place that connects people to water, nature, and one another. It will prioritize native plants and animals, public art, and community; it will inspire curiosity, connections and exploration; and it will help build a healthy, inclusive, and opportunity-rich city with vibrancy in every neighborhood.
The Red Sea Project, the country’s most ambitious regenerative tourism destination, which will play a pivotal role in the Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 ambitions. This large scale resort community on the shore of the Red Sea will be made available to visitors from around the world beginning in 2022.
Creating a destination of this size presents significant challenges. With 50 hotels and 8,000 rooms being developed across 22 islands, every single element of the destination needs to be considered in meticulous detail. To facilitate the building and operation of the destination, two high quality accommodations for employees and workers have been created. The Construction Village – which is set to house 10,000 workers – is now open, and will soon be followed by the Coastal Village which includes a three-star staff hotel for employees visiting the site as well as the 14,000 people who will eventually work at the destination. Environmental decisions inform every element of the project and determine everything from the techniques used during infrastructure works to the partners selected for new contracts. A set of operational commitments have been put in place to not only protect but also to enhance the environment.
These include a 100% reliance on renewable energy, a total ban on single-use plastics, zero waste-to-landfill, and an aspiration to achieve 100% carbon neutrality across the entire project.

The Rio Reimagined 2018 Ideas Competition encompasses a 58-mile geographic span including the Rio Salado and Gila Rivers. The Rio Reimagined belongs to the eight communities along the river corridor as they partner in creating a vibrant, urban riverfront for the valley. This historically significant and underutilized natural resource has been reimagined as a unifying public space that enhances social equity. A creative and collective effort is needed to integrate priorities of public open space, environmental quality, housing, transportation, economic and workforce development, community sustainability and resilience.
Investors who purchased the former Evans School building in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood plan to create restaurants and retail space while opening offices in the upper floors of the historic landmark. City Street Investors renovated Union Station in Denver’s Lower Downtown and see a similar vision for the Evans School building. Dining options, stores and commercial space will be a part of their goals over the next 18 months.
Designed in 1906 by architect David Dryden, the Evans School served several generations of public school students before being shuttered in the 1970s and put up for auction.
The site situated between downtown and the new pier is envisioned as a seamless yet varied experience connecting the city with the bay. The design proposal encompasses three interlinked pedestrian experiences that encourage people to enjoy the area on foot: an urban pedestrian spine that reaches from the downtown to the pierhead, a family-oriented park, and enlivened waterfront edges. With more than 5,300 feet of water frontage, these hard and soft edges provide a variety of settings for gathering and interacting with the water. The existing condition devotes more than 60% of the 20-acre area to streets and parking; the plan for the waterfront site significantly reduces roadways and parking and increases engaging pedestrian use, shade, and vegetation and manages storm water on site.
