Construction Project: Uniroyal Site
Celebrated French designer Michel Desvigne has an amazing vision for a 1,700-foot stretch of riverfront along the 30-acre Uniroyal site. The project will eliminate the biggest gap along the East Riverfront between Mt. Elliott Park and Gabriel Richard Park. Local architects from Mannik Smith Group are translating the renowned designer’s vision into detailed construction documents. When finished in 2020, the new stretch of RiverWalk will feature bold design elements and colorful landscaping as well as decorative railings, benches, lighting and security cameras. It will also provide access to Belle Isle via two pathways to the MacArthur Bridge.
