Cincinnati Riverfront

 Urban Design Associates (UDA) was commissioned by the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County to prepare a master plan for the waterfront. The primary program was a new mixed-use district anchored by two new sports stadiums. The objective was to generate maximum economic benefit for the downtown and to revitalize the central Ohio River riverfront. During a design charrette and a series of public forums, urban design principles were developed to guide future redevelopment and growth. The design creates a new riverfront park and includes the National Underground Railroad Museum, a mixed-use district (now under construction), a transit center, and a restructured downsized urban highway. The riverfront is restored as the “front door” of the city, once again a hub of activity and a place that connects people to the urban environment.
