Waterfront Planning 

From planning for small coastal communities to the redevelopment of large urban centers, Harriman has completed an array of waterfront projects throughout New England, including park designs, recreation area master plans, waterfront development projects, harbor plans, and pier and ferry terminal projects. We use sustainable principles to promote the desired growth and investment on parcels of all sizes. At the core of our successful waterfront practice is our ability to provide vision and create illuminating concepts that celebrate the continuity and meaning of the coastline while being able to navigate multiple jurisdictions and complicated regulatory standards at local, state and federal levels.
