Vision

The 58 Fore Street property is clearly a critical element of Portland's waterfront. CPB2's vision is to see this 10 acre property reach it's full potential as a revitalized waterfront neighborhood with a vibrant and diverse mix of uses that encourage year-round enjoyment and engagement by the Portland community. Our desire is to open up the site to our neighbors, the residents of Portland, and the many visitors that Portland welcomes, so that it can be celebrated now and for generations to come.

A thoughtful vision by a local team that will bring additional housing, economic stimulus and job growth to the City of Portland.

"The water's edge is the most precious resource we have. " This is the opening line of the Eastern Waterfront Master Plan and CPB2's vision is to deliver the waterfront to the city of Portland with inspiring design and planning focusing on mixed uses and architectural styles, inspiring public spaces and reinvigoration of historic structures, all which we hope will be revered decades from today.

Our vision is built on the foundation of the Eastern Waterfront Master Plan, which was shaped by the hopes, dreams and needs of the hundreds of citizen volunteers, neighborhood leaders, expert consultants and city planners, who participated throughout the extensive process. Our concepts include reinvigorating the most historically significant elements of the former Portland Company site, expanding and redeveloping the marina, providing a diverse mix of much needed housing units, enhancing the Eastern Promenade's access to the water's edge, and allowing for all-season enjoyment of  Portland's waterfront.
