Prismatic Marker

Designed by James Carpenter Design Associates as a stunning, illuminated visual marker of the Yards Park within The Yards mixed-use development, the 60 foot beacon is placed prominently at the edge of the water on the boardwalk. The light tower is intended to be a central gathering place for visitors to the park and a reference point for the development as seen from the Potomac River.
