We’re in Jacksonville Celebrating Detailed Design of Shipyards West Park!

Agency is in Jacksonville this week celebrating the 60% design milestone for the Shipyards West Park project. As part of this work, the team hosted a public open house to gather community feedback and confirm the design is aligned with community need. Community support included tangible thinking about the park will be used, such as “What we love about this is that there are certain places where you can interact with the river, put in a kayak or rent a boat to go around. There are places that you can hike through, places for children.” and how it is place-specific, such as: “There’s a lot of nuance in the design of the park as well, and (it evokes) the shipyards.”

The design team, which includes partners WXY Architects, locally-based Haskell and a broad team of experts, aims to move forward with final design over the coming months with hopes of being in bidding and construction next year. Learn more about the project here.
