I'm just interested in whether you can say "expand X [length]" without adding "by." But here's a sentence:This project aims to expand the waterfront (by) 1.5 kilometers.

Yes, you should use "by" in that sentence. Otherwise, "waterfront" could be taken as an adjective and "1.5 kilometers" as a noun instead of an adverb.
