Like many American cities, Washington, D.C., turned its back on its waterfront for decades, depriving a city bisected by two rivers of active engagement with a valuable resource. Conceived over two decades ago, Washington crafted a plan to re-envision its waterfront, using it as a key pillar in its economic development strategy. Now nearly fully realized, this panel will explore how this public/private strategy was conceived and implemented featuring the key stakeholders who helped bring this plan to life.
