WAUKEGAN LAKEFRONT - DOWNTOWN MASTER PLAN
Location: Waukegan, IL United States. 19th and 20th centruy industrial lakefront
Once the home to thousands of jobs, Waukegan's lakefront has been scarred by its 19th and 20th century industrial past. Excessive infrastructure and a fragmented urban fabric have further isolated the downtown from the Lake Michigan Shoreline. This 20-year master plan for the City's downtown and lakefront foresees revitalizing Waukegan’s moribund 200-acre downtown and 1200-acre lakefront by tapping hidden assets and reconnecting severed neighborhood within a strong urban and natural framework.Read more at this project's website.
