Case studies of the experience of six cities in planning and converting their deteriorated downtown waterfronts to amenity uses are presented and compared. From this, a prototypical planning process is derived to serve as a guide in structuring planning strategies for similar waterfront conversions. Planning innovations developed in the case studies are evaluated and physical innovations are proposed as a response to problem conditions typical of urban waterfronts.
