Haha yeah yeah... But what fun is that for a tour guide to mention on a river cruise?

It's almost as if they sized that hole to allow for standard sized trucks to pass through it...

so will the plaza float over the river's edge? would have been nice to build steps and/or some kind of a landing right down to the water... or does the water level change too much to permit that?

It looks like the WPS riverfront will look exactly like the WPE and WPS riverfront. There will be a walkway on piers suspended a couple feet above the water's edge. Considering the amount of flooding they've had along the Riverwalk, this looks like a good design. It's basically right on the water without having to deal with potential flooding.

I understand because of the nature of downtown and skyscrapers, it makes growing large plants difficult, but I think it would be so cool if we could maintain this tree lined walking area rather than the sterile pavement walkway that is going to be built.
