  4. 4. 2.Introduction. A-What is River-Front?  A riverfront is the Region along a river.  Region ( Spatial/Administrative) :  Is it the banks that belong to the city land, or islands located within the river.  Near or far from city center and major squares  districts/cities/countries does it pass through.  River:  3D space, has Length , width and depth.  Branches/ no branches=> strategically located lands.
  5. 5. 2.Introduction. B-Who Could Use It ?  Any person/ country can have access to its banks, Islands or water.  Ability to have access to use an area is restrained by (public/private) land-use or (poor/strong) accessibility.  Ex. Dahab Island
  6. 6. 2.Introduction. C-Why do we need to develop River-Fronts?  Today many riverfronts are a staple of modernism and city beautification.  Minimum avenues for recreation and open green spaces.  Affects the feel of belonging, and the social cohesion within a community.  City image-branding.  Often in larger cities that border a river, the riverfront will be lined with marinas, docks, trees, or minor attractions.  Historic documentation  Riverine tourism on its banks,  Alternative mean of transportation.  Human/Environmental connections  Sustainability of place & Maintenance of river bank.
  7. 7. 2.Introduction. D- objective of development  Providing recreation (Theme parks ) and entertainment opportunities (seating).  To providing a unique residential experience.  Create a place for business and commerce ( convention centers, business districts…etc).

Life Social Equity 1-Presence of public- semi public and private spaces ( GINI INDEX) ( Special Coefficient ) 2-Public participation. 3-Handicap facilities. Educational/Cultural/ Sports aspects 1-Educational trips, school projects & Documenting the ecological state of the waterfronts in order to preserve this 2-Awareness about , other emerging technologies (grey water recycling systems ). environmentally diverse natural habitat. 2-Facilities for offshore sports( fishing, boating, & jet skiing) & on Shore sports (Running, walking, bicycling, rollerblading, & jogging) S 3-Cultural nodes or landmarks and connecting networks between existing ones. Aesthetic Aspects 1-Landmarks.

Material Used 1-wood- Interlock- Asphalt. 2-eco-friendly bulkheads River Ecosystem preservation. ( why special in rivers?) 1-Habitat restoration
  16. 16. 4-Aspects for evaluating the efficiency of the development of the River-Fronts. Management Different Institutes 1-Cultural Institutes. 2-research centers . Pollution containment/mitigation 1-Water Pollution containment (discharging sewage waste from boats ). 2-Sound Pollution regulations. 3-Visual Pollution . Maintenance 1-Involving of private sector. 2- Cultural Heritage preservation. Regulations and laws 1-Permability. Preventing inappropriate actions and practices from the rivers’ edge.
