Harbor Shores Development
Project Details

Abonmarche has been a lead consultant for the planning, design, and construction for the Harbor Shores Development since its inception in 2003. Harbor Shores is a 530-acre, mixed-use development anchored by a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. After removal of over 100,000 tons of contaminated debris and soils from the development area, Abonmarche was actively involved with planning, park mitigation, and improvement, permitting, surveying, and engineering design for the first $89 million in public infrastructure. In addition to providing design and construction administration for the golf course and other related site development improvements, Abonmarche provided structural design for all of the bridges along the golf course. These included both the boardwalk bridges and the larger structures crossing the river. Abonmarche staff also managed significant portions of the site acquisition and public appeal process.

This project was awarded the American Council of Engineering Companies/Michigan 2012 Merit Award as well as the American Public Works Association/Michigan – 2011 Public Works Project of the Year, Quality of Life category.
