“Award-Winning Waterfront Redevelopment”

The city of Branson engaged Crawford as part of an award-winning team to redevelop its historic waterfront. Anchored by a new convention center, we recognized that the development of over 1 ¾ miles of the waterfront was an important opportunity to create a landmark destination. Crawford was responsible for urban design, design of the residential units, parking garages, public spaces, convention center hotel, boutique hotel, and shared design responsibilities for the convention center and retail components.

At the center of the development is a new town square that is the premier meeting and gathering space in Branson with a backdrop of the beautiful Lake Taneycomo and palisade beyond. We collaborated with a fountain designer to provide the town square with a major water, music, and fire extravaganza rivaling the Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas.
