Alexandria ponders a new waterfront

Alexandria wants to redevelop its Potomac River waterfront with more open space, restaurants and mixed-use development, WTOP reports.

City Planning Director Faroll Hamer says the idea would be to bring more activities to the waterfront -- everything from skating to croquet.

The city's conceptual plan for redevelopment shows more docks, piers and parks along the three-mile stretch of the Potomac River.

"We never really put it all together as a great place for people to walk all the way from the beginning to the end, and that's what we'd like to do now," Hamer says.

The plans show pier-extensions of King Street and Cameron Street. Extending those piers would require D.C. approval because they would enter the District's waters.
