Where We Have Worked
Waterfront Center Community Consulting Track Record
We recognize the importance the Center has played in the past and laud its role to the future of our waterfronts, both nationally and internationally. It is the mission of the Center that is so compelling: advocacy, long-range planning, education, context, history, sustainability, and public access to our waterways. We must lived and breathe the mission and affirm the unique platform as we are afforded on a global scale. We are obligated to support this mission.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection contracted with the Waterfront Center to help address a very contentious debate concerning what types of development should be allowed on the piers on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River. The work they performed was without doubt the most valuable, and probably also the least expensive, contract I have been involved with in 15 years of working for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection
Their passion for the past, present and potential futures of urban waterfronts adds an enthusiasm to their work that is contagious

I want to tell you how much your initial conference with us the Riverfront Design Challenge in March, 1985 has guided all subsequent plans and development. The Design Challenge brought together 50 or so community leaders and activists with waterfront experts from around the country to dream and scheme for the St.
Paul waterfront. Their work over the 2 ½-day non-stop session was, due to your effort, nothing less than inspired. The mayor hailed the day as one of the top five in his 10-year tenure as mayor. City of St. Paul, Minn.

On behalf of the City of Tempe, I want to thank you for the excellent report you prepared on the Rio Salado Project. Your critical analysis of our efforts prior to completion of the construction drawings was most timely and very much appreciated. The report was well received throughout the community and most importantly served as an enlightened source of new information on critical topics.

The discussions which the two of you
facilitated were extremely rewarding for all of us and for Yorktown
I have heard nothing but positive reactions from all of those who participated and from those who have seen the concept plans developed during the discussions. I even understand that some of the participants were telephoning each other as early as 8 a.m. on Sunday morning to talk over more ideas!
