11/13/18 GREEN BAY, WI TSX, NYSE:STN

The City of Green Bay (City) and the Redevelopment Authority of Green Bay (RDA) are moving forward with the redevelopment project known as The Shipyard, and Stantec has been chosen as the lead consultant for Phase I of the redevelopment. The project involves remediating brownfields, repurposing vacant and underused property, and enhancing a residential neighborhood on the west side of the City.

For the past eight years, Stantec has worked closely with the City to assess brownfield and underutilized sites in the City’s downtown along the Fox River. Since 2013, Stantec has helped the City secure $900,000 in U.S. EPA brownfield grants funds to assess brownfield sites, including 17 parcels in the redevelopment area near The Shipyard.

“This assessment work provided valuable data to support the City’s redevelopment plans for The Shipyard,” said Lynelle Caine, senior project manager in Stantec’s Green Bay office. “We couldn’t be more excited to help the City turn their vision into a reality.”

Phase I of the overall redevelopment project will consist of the following:

  • Site preparation and overall stormwater management for the area:  Stantec will provide environmental, civil engineering, and FEMA permitting services to prepare both the north and south slips for redevelopment. The north slip will be developed by Breakthrough and the south slip by RDA into a multi-use, multi-season park with various public amenities. Stantec is the lead designer for the park.
  • Public improvements: Stantec has teamed with Robert E. Lee & Associates, Inc. and Berners-Schober Associates, Inc. to design and permit various public improvements to support both the Breakthrough development and The Shipyard public park. The proposed improvements are to include: street reconstructions along portions of Arndt, Bridge, and S. Pearl Street, additional surface parking lots, pedestrian paths, railroad crossings, stormwater management facilities, and public buildings for various uses.
  • Multi-use /multi-season public park:  Stantec’s team of local and national experts will work with the City to design The Shipyard public recreational areas. Various amenities are planned for the site, which may include a multi-purpose sports field with bleachers, a concession building with locker rooms and bathrooms, a splashpad, pedestrian trails, public art, shipping container retail park, waterfront activities (fishing, boating, kayaking), as well as connectivity to the north slip via a pedestrian bridge. The City and Stantec will ask for public input in the near future.

“We work hard to understand our client’s goals, imagine new possibilities together, and strive for excellence in every project,” said Michael Bach, project manager in Stantec’s Mequon office. “We look forward to working with our project partners, the City of Green Bay, and RDA to redevelop this area into a destination for years to come.”
