CLARKSVILLE – HWC is partnering with MKSK on a riverfront redevelopment project that got approved by the town council in early March 2016. MKSK is the design firm on the project while HWC will be doing the transportation and utility engineering on the project.
Dylan Fisher, director of the town’s redevelopment department, encouraged the council to support the plan, saying it will benefit Clarksville’s larger community.
“I think the concepts and the projects and the ideas this plan sets forward are exactly what Clarksville needs for that area,” Fisher told the council and residents Monday night.
Approval from the town council was the last step of a lengthy review process by the city and the design firm. Fetter has previously said the town has been in talks with interested developers and it’s ready to hit the ground running.
The south Clarksville project is estimated to take 10-15 years to complete. It consists of a mixed-use district that aims to attract young professionals and the millennial generation with new apartment buildings, restaurants, local shops and entertainment venues that would fill the space between historic buildings and attractions already in the area — such as the Derby Dinner Playhouse.
The design firm presented sketches of riverfront terraces, new apartment buildings and streets lined with bike lanes to the council and residents who attended the meeting.
