Updated designs of The Shipyard released
GREEN BAY – Stantec recently released the updated designs of The Shipyard.
Since the project’s inception, Stantec has worked closely with The City of Green Bay to design an assortment of attractions and programming aimed at creating a year-round destination for visitors and residents to gather.
The Shipyard will be anchored by a shipping container park that has been designed to host a variety of types of tenants, which may include restaurants, incubator space for startup businesses, local artisans, boutique retail, equipment rentals and short-term housing/vacation rentals.
The exact mix of tenants will be finalized closer to project completion.
A local company, Breakthrough, is also planning to build a 40,000-square-foot headquarters building on the northern end of the site.
In addition to the shipping container park, there are several planned support attractions, including a beer garden, urban beach, volleyball, adventure playground, play fountain, dog park, wetland, lookout, fishing wharf, kayak launch, marina with boat slips, floating docks, terrace waterfront seating, riverfront promenade, a great lawn with room for a temporary stage and various pedestrian connections and amenities.
“Throughout the entire project, we have maintained careful focus on options that the city residents desire, local businesses can champion, and the city can realistically operate and maintain,” said Michael Bach, project manager in Stantec’s Mequon office. “The Shipyard is being designed for the city to be able to host a variety of events onsite, ranging from festivals and movies in the summer to ice skating and markets in the winter.”
Stantec’s design team and its partners, Robert E. Lee & Associates, Inc. and American Engineering and Testing, have worked extensively to understand the conditions of the project area.
In close coordination with the city, the team is developing The Shipyard amenities and supporting infrastructure to provide ample parking, safe street/railroad crossings and trail connections.
The Shipyard is expected to be completed in the second half of 2020.
