New Mixed-Use Urban Infill Race Pier The objective of this competition was to better integrate a major transportation corridor into the city fabric. This design seeks to achieve that by developing the existing highway into a multiway, multi-modal boulevard to activate the urban edge.

Additionally, this design extends the city transit grid to the river, connecting the city back to its waterfront and conceives a master plan for a holistically sustainable, mixed-use walkable neighborhood. Lastly, the existing wasteland of warehouses and parking lots was given a new identity as “Penn Pier”, a lively entertainment hub on the river.
