Haverstraw Ferry Landing

72 - Haverstraw Site Plan.jpg
Project Overview: 
As part of the Village of Haverstraw’s Waterfront Revitalization Program, McLaren was retained to provide marine and ferry terminal design, as well as an environmental assessment. The project, completed in three (3) phases, consists of a multi-purpose ferry terminal with an integrated 450 car parking structure along the Hudson River in the Lower Hudson Valley region. The ferry terminal consists of docking space and associated piers, wharfs and bulkheads, a terminal building, internal and external lighting, and infrastructure improvements, including electric, sewerage, site drainage, and stormwater retention.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided overall responsibility for the project management of this contract, quality control, coordination of the project’s design, and environmental review functions. The ferry terminal design addressed a number of challenging issues such as the site’s location in the state-designated Haverstraw Bay Significant Coastal Fish & Wildlife Habitat.

Edgewater Marina, Park and Terminal

Project Overview: 
McLaren provided Marine, Site/Civil, Permitting, and Construction Administration services for this 12.4-acre site consisting of 2.9 acres of upland area and 9.5 acres of waterside docks and marinas. The project required the demolition of existing on-site structures, construction of a ferry landing, associated facilities and open spaces, on-site utilities relocation and the rehabilitation of a number of marine structures.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren developed design criteria for the new ferry landing, marina and building structures, which included design loads, vessel types, ADA requirements and material specifications. Upon an above and below water survey, McLaren determined the condition of the existing components of the marina before coming up with rehabilitation design plans. Additionally, McLaren assisted in a boring program and in submitting for the appropriate permits. McLaren outlined specifications for the new ferry landing, marina and building structures and proposed preliminary and final design documents.

Battery Park City Ferry Terminal

BPCA Ferry Terminal.jpg
Project Overview: 
The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey contracted McLaren to provide structural and marine engineering services for the design of a permanent floating ferry terminal, which will provide the facility a minimum 25-year life. The facility is the largest of its kind in the United States, encompassing more than ¾ acres of floating structure. The Battery Park City Ferry Terminal was originally constructed in 1989 to provide ferry service between Hoboken and Battery Park City. It was a temporary structure consisting of a floating landing terminal and appurtenances.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren’s services under this contract involved preparation of Stage I – Schematic Design Documents, Stage II – Preliminary Design Documents, Stage III – Detailed Design Documents, and Stage IV – Construction Administration. The floating terminal structure consists of a mono-hull main terminal; two anchorage towers anchored to bedrock, 75 feet below the water; and pedestrian walkways connecting to the Battery Park City Esplanade. McLaren was also responsible for the design of ADA-compliant access ramps to the ferries, fendering, staging, and constructability.
