Riverside revival

As more people are drawn to live downtown, the Cocheco River is one attraction. Who wouldn’t want to sit out on a deck overlooking the water? Or maybe get out in a kayak?

With a design reflecting earlier New England mills, the fairly new Riparia is being joined by a sister multiuse building. They sit on a former parking lot and intend, among other things, to encourage pedestrian traffic along the riverfront.

 

Here’s the new construction on streetside.
