Return to the Riverbend Master Plan

The Return to the Riverbend Master Plan includes the redevelopment of 220 acres of land along approximately two acres of waterfront in Middletown, CT. The master plan envisions a more vibrant, diverse waterfront area, providing over 50 acres of park space, seven miles of pathways, and two miles of public amenities. Langan helped develop a comprehensive master plan and framework to guide future residential and industrial developments. We analyzed the river’s edge, site conditions, and traffic and parking constraints, and determined how those aspects may impact redevelopment opportunities. We also helped design the riverfront open space and trails, public parks, esplanade, living shorelines, overlooks, and the complete streets connecting downtown to the river; evaluated areas for waterfront access and activities; and assessed potential constraints of the floodplain and other critical regulatory conditions.
