The landscaping and development of 120 kilometers of coastline concentrated on three areas:
1. the central corniche, with three new bridges, an underpass providing access to the city centre, an open-air sculpture court, and a water sculpture;
2. the northern corniche which, due to private property ownership along the coast, necessitated use of a shallow (200-300m) sea shelf to integrate the sea, roads, lakes, landscaping, sculptures and recreational facilities; and,
3. the southern corniche.
