"Cover Story" piece on Bangor's new waterfront plan, which represents a $140 million gamble. A 35-acre waterfront parcel on the Penobscot River has been acquired by the city in a series of transactions since the early 1980s. The city is now constructing a mammoth underground reservoir to hold storm water runoff and when it's finished later this year, the state could be set for one of the biggest waterfront projects in the Northeast. Hunter Interests of Annapolis, Md., the design consultant selected by the city council, envisions a waterfront site that will include a 250-room hotel, a high-tech conference center, a health services office building, an outdoor amphitheater, green space and trails, recreation fields, specialty shops and an intermodal transportation hub. The city would kick in about $14 million for public facilities and amenities. With a description of downtown Bangor today, and with retail sales growth figures for Maine's ten largest cities.
