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.
In Sep. 2018, the U.S. General Services Administration broke ground on the new Fred D. Thompson U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building in Nashville, Tennessee. Slated for completion in spring 2021, the new courthouse will provide eight courtrooms and 11 judges’ chambers. In addition to the U.S. District Court, the new facility will provide workspace for the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services System, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, GSA and local senatorial staff offices.
The National Western Center (NWC) represents a visionary transformation of the National Western Complex and Denver Coliseum sites into a must-see destination and regional asset, enhancing these current Denver landmarks through creative year-round activity. With a combined 130 acres of redeveloped land, the National Western Center will support Denver’s global standing as a world-class hub for the Western way of life. The master planning effort will bolster a variety of opportunities through the involvement of our partners including Colorado State University, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, History Colorado and an Advisory Committee made up of residents, business owners and other stakeholders from the surrounding Globeville, Elyria and Swansea neighborhoods. In short, the NWC can become an international model for a synergistic educational and R&D community – with those entire words writ broad and adapted to the evolving definitions of mid-21st century populations.
The National Western Center celebrates the pioneering spirit and promise of the West through year-round experiential lifelong learning, the arts, entertainment, competition and commerce.
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.
