A new floating dock was installed secretly in the Gorge waterway with the hopes of sparking a community conversation about rethinking the way we use the harbour.
After a 2018 trip to Copenhagen, Luke Mari, along with the two other owners of Aryze Development, felt something was missing when they returned home. The three friends were inspired by the working harbour, lined with people swimming on hot summer days.
Thus, Project Albero was born. The floating circular dock with a Japanese Katsura tree in the middle was built with the help of architects and engineers and was secretly pulled into the middle of the Gorge, near Banfield Park on July 15.
i'm all for secret floating docks. but can just anyone haul anything they want to into the gorge? i thought we were trying to get junk out of the water.
maybe permits and liability insurance and a maintenance plan are all in place. but i'm not reading that anywhere. dunno.
on a deeply personal note i hate floating docks. i find almost nothing more gross than climbing a ladder with some type of slimy growth attached to it.
