The council approved several plans geared toward enhancing the vibrancy of Old Town’s waterfront at its March public hearing. The area has changed significantly since 2012 when the city council approved the waterfront small area plan. The plan incorporated walkways, parks and other public spaces where residents and visitors can enjoy views of the Potomac River. The city council approved special use permits for a new pier for Tall Ship Providence and outdoor music at Riverside Taco at the March 14 public hearing.
According to alextimes.com, “Since coming to Alexandria in July 2019, Tall Ship Providence has been docked at the G/H Pier, adjacent to Founders Park. The new pier, to be built on the water at Waterfront Park just south of King Street, will provide a long-term docking spot for Tall Ship Providence and feature two 24-by-32-foot cottages that will serve as a visitor center where visitors can purchase tickets and learn about the ship and the city’s maritime history.”
As per alextimes.com, “The Tall Ship Maritime Center will be constructed as a floating dock that rises and falls with water levels, similar to the Seaport Foundation’s McIlhenny Seaport Center. Unlike the two-story McIlhenny Center building, the Tall Ship Providence cottages will only be one story and measure 20.5 feet tall.”
