Portage Municipal Marina
250-slip marina on Lake Michigan
Abonmarche conducted initial feasibility studies; created a park and marina master plan; provided surveying, architectural and landscaping services; and arranged for all permitting, including IDNR/USCOE and local approvals, for this $12 million project. The total project includes a riverwalk along Burns Waterway, fishing platforms into Burns Waterway and rest room facilities for public use. In addition to the 250-slip marina and boat launch, the park features a 6-lane boat launch facility, large parking lot, retaining walls and natural landscaping. A special natural resource area was developed as a part of the USCOE permit process. Other special project features include the use of NIPSCO right-of-way properties and grading easements with S.R. 12 and S.R. 249. In addition to the marina, Abonmarche designed a new Harbor Master’s office and marina support building. The 3,000 sq. ft. building includes a waterfront snack bar and restaurant.
