U of R – Gambles Mill Eco-Corridor

Since 2012 the University of Richmond has aimed to convert an abandoned service road and mill site to a vibrant trail corridor connecting its student and faculty to nearby neighborhoods, retail centers, and the James River Parks System.


Leveraging relationships with local authorities, mitigation specialists and engineers, Waterstreet Studio has catalyzed the project by designing and securing funding for the multi-modal trail and comprehensive restoration of the adjacent Little Westham Creek. Site amenities include outdoor classrooms and fitness stations, a student memorial, native plantings, stormwater facilities and campus gateways to adjacent neighborhoods.
