The Riverwalk at the Bridges is located along Blount Avenue in the SW6 form based code district. The development will have approximately, 1,100 ft. of river walk spanning along the upper bluff of the site between the Gay and Henley Bridges.  

The riverwalk will average about 20-30 feet in width and consist of a running path, site furnishings (with benches, trash receptacles, bike racks and lighting) and a multi-use path for bikes and pedestrians.  

Additional features include approximately 37,500 square feet of public event space (adjacent to the Henley Bridge) with amphitheater seating. Modifications included more public space between the two apartment complexes. The center public plaza will consists of upper (Blount Avenue level) and lower (riverwalk level) plazas with access to the lower level via elevator or stairs.  

A small pocket park is another feature located on the east end of the greenway. 

Landscaping will consist of native plantings (trees, shrubs and groundcover) throughout the public plaza  and greenway area.

Riverwalk at the Bridges is tentatively scheduled to open its first units in late 2018.
