“THIRTY YEARS AND COUNTING” was the theme of this year’s Waterfront Center
conference held in New York City in October. This is in recognition of the Center’s 30th anniversary in 2011 as well as the approximate date when the waterfront redevelopment phenomenon took hold in this country and abroad.
To reflect the theme, one of the conference’s 12 panels featured cities whose waterfront work dates back at least 30 years. Candidates include London and Liverpool UK, Newport, R.I., Oakland, Calif., Seattle, Wash. and St. Louis, Mo.
For over 25 years the Center’s conference has been recognized as the premier international waterfront meeting, bringing together a wide range of practitioners from varied disciplines and geography. In all the Urban Waterfronts 2011 featured 33 presenters, from cities of all sizes and from a range of geography including overseas. In addition there was a keynote feature and a closing presentation. A conference highlight was the first announcement of the winners of the Center’s annual awards program. The 2001 jury chairman was Jonathan Goldstick, senior vice president, Halcrow Inc., New York, N.Y.
A pre-conference workshop featured a sampling of the New York area’s waterfront projects was conducted all day on Thursday, Oct. 27. Special briefings and on-site tours were organized by a host local committee, headed by Donna Walcavage, principal/vice president at AECOM and Roland Lewis, president and CEO, Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance, both New York City.
