Baltimore

8 of 15

What PPS Says: Baltimore was part of the first wave
of waterfront renewal. It has a perfect setting with a small, compact, and
diversified harbor with ample activities to engage both visitors and residents.

What We Like: A wide boardwalk forms a U-shape proscenium
around the harbor, with the water center stage and historic ships moored along
the wharf. Glass-sided buildings house shops and restaurants, while a
semicircle of tiered brick seating creates a place to watch the water traffic.
The boardwalk marches east toward enclosed piers with more shops, restaurants
with outdoor seating, art galleries, and the National Aquarium, and then
extends beyond to the working port.
