how is this supposed to become a vibrant greenway public space?
the residential windows are right next to and above the public space area. this causes conflict by design. you know th people that live above the esplanade are going to lobby for quietness and less public activities.
this is what happens when you let developers run the show,
there should be activity from 6am to midnight . There is loss of public space by putting the windows so low, tables and chair and awning, shade tent can no longer be placed there. A better design would have been space for ethnic food gallery, ice cream, juice bar , espresso bar, make the pier a healthy family destination, not a place of gin mills.

there should be a market or some activity in this corner

put a market or dancing in this corner .
