The biggest challenge for the development of the Delta and Porto Baroš area was the planned requirement for the accommodation of a Waste Water Treatment Facility / Plant near the east part of the Delta master plan. 

The concept is based on the establishment of a New Ecological greenway corridor and creation of a New Central City Park. For Rijeka, this new Green Area is essential because the city has a very small overall percentage of green open spaces. The New Eco-corridor extends from the canyon of the Riječina River on the north; all the way to the Sea i.e. mouth of the river – Delta. It naturally slopes all the way to the Sea, ecologically regenerating the right bank of the Riječina river into a desirable place.

The new topography of the Ecological Corridor is designed to integrate the north and south of the Delta. It creates a number of new pedestrian vistas and allows many new connections and split-levels, new public spaces. It covers and visually masks the Waste Water Treatment Facility and protects the masterplan from the noise coming from the container terminal on the east. This also enables cost-effective construction of underground garages. At this level, the public facilities of the New City Marina are integrated into the urban fabric with attractive restaurants and other amenities.

The New City Park/Green corridor incorporates two landmark buildings on each end of the eastern edge of the Delta: a New Auditorium and Convention Centre building on the north, and a New Aquarium and Water Museum building on the end of the river delta.
