Stretch of waterfront could get new permanent railings

A stretch of the waterfront could be getting new permanent railings after being stuck with unsightly temporary fencing for years.

The area of the waterfront at 1 Pioneer Mill Way, where BARCA Pier & Wine Bar is, could be getting a new permanent railing.

The proposal is scheduled for the consent calendar — items usually approved with little or no discussion — at the Wednesday, March 3 Board of Architectural Review meeting.

The addition is designed by OLIN, the studio handling much of the waterfront redesign, and will be designed to complement other nearby features at Waterfront Park.
