Harbor Park Ideation & Master Planning

aec   Providence Partnership LLC  |   Ideation and conceptual master planning for mixed-use gaming destination at Harbor Park, Virginia.  The entire project site is situated within a Federally-designated Opportunity Zone.    Harbor Park is situated along the Elizabeth River (Norfolk harbor) – a working harbor featuring shipbuilding, refitting, etc., and associated with the largest naval base in the world.

 

Infrastructure issues include rerouting E. Water Street to connect directly with Park Avenue, and possibly rerouting Tide light rail line to follow a new E. Water Street / Park Avenue alignment.   Power lines of Dominion Energy are the main power source serving downtown Norfolk and would need to be rerouted.     As well, the entire site would likely need to be raised to meet 100-year floodplain issues, with the existing seawall rebuilt.

 

Illustration work shown here is a product of aec‘s Rapid Prototyping Unit, combining feasibility results with preliminary project scaling, layout, and overall guest experiential design – created to assist Ownership group in confirming design intent and project budgets.

La Costa Ranch MPC

BCE Development  |  For this prominent master-planned residential community, in North San Diego County, work was in support of company’s overall business planning effort. Client organization was interested in understanding the financial comparison of various build-out strategies, exiting either through bulk land sale, finished lot takedowns to end builders, or hold and develop through end homebuilding. Work included “finished lot vs. builder pad” take-down scenarios.

 

BCE Development had acquired this North San Diego County master-planned community with substantial remaining build-out inventory, as part of a portfolio acquisition of major land developments. A business plan with detailed market and financial analysis was prepared, for use by California senior management of this major Canadian company, in presenting to the Board of Directors various alternatives for disposition and/or development. One key strategic marketing issue in the business planning effort, was the amount and type of senior housing (independent living, assisted living, skill nursing, etc.) to be included in the land use plan.

 

The La Costa Ranch property is part of he City of Carlsbad, a unique coastal community located about 35 miles north of the City of San Diego surrounded by mountains, lagoons and the Pacific Ocean. The City’s overall build-out population is about 135,000 residents based upon a total dwelling unit cap ratified by Carlsbad votes in the November 1986 election. While a smaller, coastal community, Carlsbad is the location of multimedia, biomedical, electronic, and light industrial businesses.
