Heritage, Storytelling & Interpretive

Alexandria, VA Waterfront

Founded as a colonial town in 1749, the City of Alexandria, Virginia is embarking on a multi-year capital program to reinvent the city’s waterfront as a dynamic gateway to historic Old Town. The $60 million program includes development of a riverfront promenade and the new Fitzgerald Square plaza.

CG has teamed up with Wallace Roberts & Todd and Hickok Cole Architects to revitalize this Potomac waterfront and increase opportunities for an interactive pedestrian experience. To create an interpretive program, CG is studying paving, custom fences and railing as well as more traditional signage. Visitors will learn about West’s Point unique place in history through its wildlife, culture and commerce.
