Dunkirk Harborfront Pier and Plaza Improvements

What was the Challenge?

The primary challenge of this project was to transform a prime waterfront facility from an asphalt parking lot to a beautiful promenade and boardwalk that would attract visitors, anglers, and residents to the water for reasons other than to park their cars.

How did Barton & Loguidice provide a solution?

The completed project included a balance between vehicle and pedestrian access, lighting and plantings, banners and enhanced pavements, and a gateway arch feature that ties into the City’s transformative project for the City of Dunkirk.

Why was the project a success?

The Dunkirk waterfront is a haven for recreational visitors and is a popular fishing destination for Lake Erie anglers. This project successfully struck a balance between form and function to allow everyone to use the new City Pier for a myriad of purposes.
