Port of Everett Selects PND Engineering and Miller Hull to Lead Waterfront Place Central’s Public Infrastructure Design
The up to $3 million, multi-year contract includes engineering and design services for Waterfront Place Central’s public infrastructure and the review of proposed private development projects for the Port. The contract is a task order contract that could extend throughout the duration of the project’s estimated ten-year construction.
Waterfront Place Central is a new community where people can live, work, shop, relax and find entertainment. The project includes 15 new public gathering spaces, up to 660 housing units, two waterfront hotels, at least 10 fine and casual dining restaurants, and 662,000 sq. ft. of commercial, retail and marine sales and services. The project brings $33 million in public infrastructure funded by the Port’s capital improvement plan, plus immediate opportunities for private developers anticipated at $330 million. At full build out, the project will support more than 2,000 jobs and $8.6 million in new tax revenue for the city.
Within PND’s scope, the Port may task the firm to provide detailed planning, design and construction documents for all phases of Waterfront Place Central and the Port of Everett Marina so that all required infrastructure improvements can be permitted, bid and constructed. The work includes engineering of the roadways, sidewalks, utilities infrastructure, electrical engineering design, landscape architecture for the public spaces, geotechnical work, parking management and cost estimating. The contract could also include marina engineering for the floats, gangways and bulkheads for the eastern corner of the Central Marina.
In addition to PND and Miller Hull, the consultant team also includes: Harbor Power Engineers, Inc., Hart Crowser, Landau Associates, Gibson Traffic Consultants, Inc., Notkin Mechanical Engineers and PCS Structural Solutions. This contract will complete 90 percent of the design work for Fisherman’s Harbor, and between 30-60 percent design work for the remaining facilities.
The Port of Everett has also retained Cascade Design Collaborative to provide the creative inspiration for the 15 public gathering spaces associated with the Waterfront Place Central Development.
