Construction Project: Chene Park—East/West Parcels
As part of the ongoing evolution of the east riverfront, parcels east and west of Chene Park will be enhanced during the next phase of construction in 2014.
To the west, the former Watermark property will feature a colored concrete walkway from Atwater Street to the riverfront, along with dynamic landscaping, benches, bike racks and lighting. The former Holcim property to the east will feature benches, recycling containers and lighting, along with an inviting circular concrete entrance off of Atwater Street, connecting to a colored walkway that leads visitors to the riverfront. Other amenities include concrete planters, a retaining wall made of decorative stone and a concrete foundation that will support a new large-scale sculpture along the shoreline.
Partial demolition and site work at these two parcels is anticipated for spring 2014, with construction complete by summer 2014. Completion of these two parcels will be an important step toward the completion of the east riverfront’s 3.5-mile footprint and will serve as a welcome enhancement for regular users of the RiverWalk.
