SYNOPSIS
WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT

INTRODUCTION

Development of an water front area with an aim of connecting and


integrating the city with water. Waterfronts are settlements or civilizations or
commercial developments that come up along the water body. Waterfronts are
dynamic and unique places where the land and water meet. It is the interface of
the aquatic and the terrestrial.

A waterfront zone is where interaction happens between the urban and the
water. By being an interface between land and water, the waterfront zone is an
area endowed with special characteristics. Waterfront is a zone of interaction
and the waterfront area is considered to be a unique and irreplaceable resource
where it interfaces between the land and water.

Water is a defining force that fundamentally shapes the character of each place
it touches. It's a feature to be celebrated and honoured. Urban waterfronts, like
the cities help define, dynamic places. Waterfronts are often the most valuable
resource of a city. Also cities seek a waterfront zone that is a place of public
enjoyment, ample visual and public access- to both the water and the land.
These waterfronts have the potential to become the cultural and heritage hubs of
the city that lie on the banks or shores of the waterfront as well as attract people
from the city and also tourists.

Why waterfronts?- Over recent few decades, waterfront development and


redevelopment has evolved and taken on its own identity in areas such as
historic preservation and recreation. Creating minimum avenues for recreation
and green open spaces. Also today many waterfronts are a staple of modernism,
city beautification and helps in tourism.
