The site currently contains a park which over the years has deteriorated and faced issued with failing infastructure and entertainment. erosion due to flooding. A large amount of pavement as well as a lack of tree plantings on the site has increased flood maintenance costs and damaged the river bank. The site plan addresses the flooding issue in an innovative and aesthetically pleasing manner. The cities improved connectivity by develop- ing pedestrian bridges.
