Waterfronts
BRR prepared the Lynn Waterfront Open Space Master Plan for a 305 acre area along the city’s shoreline. Downtown Lynn is increasingly disconnected from its waterfront and significant coastal erosion and seawall deterioration threaten future development and open space potential. BRR worked closely with local residents, groups, and representatives to reimagine the waterfront area. Design guidelines for the promenade and waterfront spaces will ensure a cohesive waterfront is delivered. Site-specific storm surge projections informed the proposed resiliency measures, such as raising the height of the coastal edge and using a combination of hard edge and soft edge treatments like living shorelines. BRR is now working on the construction drawings for two parks within the Open Space Master Plan area for DCR.
