Located between Port Graham and Nanwalek, this complex fills the void and creates a “bridge” between these two remote Alaskan towns. Due to current physical conditions, a new and larger airport has been designed to service both communities, connected by a main road. A community center, restaurant, and yurt-style lodges have been implemented as auxiliary functions to create a destination for tourists and accommodations for locals, in addition to providing further job opportunities for the sustainable economies that have been thriving locally. Future development lots have been articulated and planned for further expansion of the economy.
