58 Fore Street Waterfront Develpment
MBLA is part of a large team of consultants working on revitalizing an urban waterfront zone in the city of Portland, Maine. The proposed master plan delineates 10 acres of mixed-use development. The landscape concept offers an integrated system of spaces and connections that respond to the site's context and support the multiple, year-round uses of the new neighborhood. Pedestrian-oriented and accessible from all directions, this new urban landscape elegantly organizes the rich range of users throughout the site: pedestrians, bicycles, cars, service and emergency vehicles and the narrow-gauge train. The simple, rational design is supported by a palette of timeless, durable materials that unify the old and new and contribute to the unique identity of this distinctive new neighborhood in Portland.
