At the end of 2018, the city of Corunna launched a competition to find ideas for the waterfront. Of the 17 proposals received, nine were accepted by the jury in the first round. Almost all propose flats, moving cruise ship activities away, and eliminating the old wall separating the port from the city. The jury selected five proposals based on the following criteria: City-Port integration, mobility and accessibility, sustainability, economic model, and citizen participation. To comply with the last point, the 5 projects were presented to the public on 27 February and public consultation is open until 26 March.
