Looked to - means you are expecting something from the thing that you are 'looking to'. 'He looked to the skies for ...' or above SC question

Looked at - Is straightforward. Just looking at something. 'He looked at the skies to see the stars.

Pls correct me if I am missing something.

Between A and B, I'll take A. B suggests the waterfront is doing the work of improving quality of life.

need are as verb of that and that refers to either "a large number of communities" (or the Great Lakes). i am not sure. as per rules it should refer to the gr8 lakes but sometims the rule also has exceptions. so, anyway "that" is plural and need plural verb "are".

A/B wrong. D is also wrong because pronoun "it" has not clear referant. E is awakward.
