For the past 30 years the Waterfront Center in Washington, DC has sponsored the award process to recognize the best waterfront projects. Decisions are based on a project's good design, economic feasibility, participatory planning, environmental sensitivity, provision of the maximum amount of public access, and how the project is tailored to the individuality, history, and economic climate of its community.
