Reimagining the Industrial Waterfront: Utica’s Harbor Point

When designing this project, we took into account numerous factors that would affect both Harbor Point and Utica in general. The project had to be both cost-effective due to Utica’s sensitive residential market price and consistent with Harbor Points waterfront nature. This project’s success would lead to the future development of Harbor Point, so we focused on numerous aspects like unit mix, design, and uses of the buildings. Focusing mainly on the affordable residential complexes, we tried to address the area’s population problem and offer the residents cheap but modern living alternatives. We had to take into account the fact that Utica’s residential market is itself on affordable housing, so we had to keep our development and rental costs in a limited amount. Throughout the planning stage, we focused on the following objectives: To increase pedestrian foot traffic to Harbor Point; Develop new affordable residential complexes with Utica prices; Develop public spaces to attractive for residents; To start economic activity in Harbor Point.
