City of Tonawanda
Wendel’s landscape architects and structural engineers collaborated on this project, which provides access to a unique and scenic location at the junction of Ellicott Creek and the Erie Canal——Gateway Harbor. Gateway Harbor is located between the City of Tonawanda and North Tonawanda, New York.
The partially cantilevered fishing pier features high quality Ipe wood decking and locally sourced cut limestone boulders that retain the earth and provide a natural border for the deck and landscaping along the accessible ramp.
The design and overall project collaboration extended to include NYDOS Office of Planning and Development, NYSDEC, NYS Canal Corporation, City of Tonawanda Engineer, and Department of Public Works, as well as BVR Construction.
