    Great idea
    To reduce impact on the river some of the more far flung elements might even be on piers or floating.
    This “constructed” shoreline would do much to recreate the shore edge we’ve lost in urban areas without impacting on the already built, and heavily utilized urban environment from the bulkhead inland.
