Formerly a degraded riverfront, Mill River is now an active and verdant environment in downtown Stamford, Connecticut. Working closely with ecologists, OLIN revitalized the aquatic and terrestrial habitats with native plants that support wildlife and are capable of withstanding storm events. Walking paths along the river reconnect neighborhoods. A carousel, café, fountain and ice skating rink—to be implemented at later phases—will promote a festive atmosphere.
