This project provided plans to transform an abandoned mud flat parcel into a waterfront marine park. A successful public and private partnership was established between the city of Juneau and Morris Communications to develop the Marine Park Master Plan. The plan advocates that the 60,000 SF site be used for creating a great public plaza featuring the long-awaited memorial to honor the USS Juneau, outdoor arts and crafts, a boutique shopping experience, a cozy theater, restaurants, food vendors, local merchants, and tourist bus kiosks bound for the famous Mendenhall Glacier, historic Juneau, and famous gold mines. The park will be the landing to receive tourist ships carrying 5,000 passengers as they arrive in Alaska’s capital city.
