Designed territory is located in former harbour area, which is considered to become functional part of the city in that way giving the city access to the water. Therefore, the main question is how to convert and develop the territory, which was enclosed for a long time by adapting it to city needs. Former industrial city function did not formed valuable built up areas and intensive traffic street formed a boundary between territory and city creating an effect of ”island”. Detailed plan is aimed to create unique urban structure in the coastline with strong identity and high value extending the central part of the city to Curonian lagoon. Connection with urban fabric is formed by system of urban spaces along Danė river axis. In the area, local system of urban spaces acts as a ring distributing flows evenly. The culmination point of spatial structure is a port of small ships. Historical signs: tree alley and valuable buildings are integrated into designed built up area. New terminal of cruise ships is designed near winter port.
