Location: Milwaukee, WI, USA. Riverfront area of Milwaukee formerly covered by elevated freeway

This reclamation of the land for human-scale development includes the careful creation of new neighborhoods featuring a riverfront walkway, new retail, housing, and parks. A new at-grade six-lane boulevard accommodates automobile traffic.
