Demolition begins this Monday, March 6, 2017 to remove the 4-foot concrete warehouse foundation (AKA Sugar Pad) for the Intermediate Terminal and Riverfront Public Access Project.

The second phase also includes grading, seeding and refurbishing the Terminal Dock, and is expected to be completed by June. At completion the dock will be ready to receive cruise ship traffic.

Ahead of Phase III, as part of the Riverfront Master Plan, a public meeting will be scheduled in the near future to present conceptual options for the Terminal Dock and Lehigh Property. The improvements at both the Terminal Dock and Lehigh properties are expected to provide public park space and public riverfront access.

A conceptual plan from 2015 (ABOVE) (LARGER) illustrates a much more polished version of the area, connecting a dock area to a public promenade in front of the planned Stone Brewing Restaurant.
