Carr, Lynch, Hack and Sandell prepared a plan for the Springfield Riverfront Commission and Amtrak, owners of a 6-acre site on the Connecticut River adjacent to downtown. The scheme included 250 units of condominium housing, a 310-unit hotel and parking to serve the users along with a ground level retail and restaurants. The plan provided a remedy to difficult access conditions: the site is isolated from downtown by I-91, and bisected by active railroad tracks. Its development will be the
first step in the revitalization of Springfield's long-neglected riverfront.
