River relocation in progress. Waterplace Park is being developed with its bridges (Exchange St., Francis St., and pedestrian walkways) built or under construction. Memorial Boulevard is for now a construction site. The Westin Hotel is being erected in the background where we see the Convention Center parking garage.
