Beale Street Landing will be a new, public, commercial riverboat landing and will include
· five “islets” on different elevations planted as park space with seating areas and water features, · wide stepped concrete areas descending to the river,
. a 480’ long floating dock,
· a circular ramp to connect with the floating dock,
· a grass-covered ramp under which will be a 13,000 sq. ft. glass-walled building for ticket sales, gift shop, and small restaurant,
A parking space for tour buses to unload will be built between the spiral ramp and the floating dock. The design for Beale Street Landing is by Javier Rivarola, Gustavo Trosman, and Ricardo Norton of RTN Architects, Buenos Aires, Argentina, winners of an international competition. Several local architectural firms are also participating in the project.
