A mixed use private development that ties into the urban fabric on one side and the waterfront on the other, facilitating connections between the two. The curving and angling building concentrates the stream of movement coming from the city and funnels it through the site down to the waterfront through multiple paths. The brick portions relate in scale to the historic fabric and wrap a wood ark that is scaled to the lake. A cylinder collects stormwater and gradually releases it through a filtering garden.
