dc.description.abstractThe development of the contemporary waterfront is an extremely successful and lucrative model of urban growth however the development process often elides serious environmental problems such as the discharge of highly contaminated stormwater and sea level rise. Is it possible to develop an urban planning methodology that makes a serious attempt at resolving and remediating environmental problems while preserving the expected real estate returns of a typical waterfront development? This paper explores the remediation of contaminated stormwater and a redefined topography as a generator for a new waterfront planning methodology.en_NZ
