Along the north, south and east frontages of the St. Joseph River, Berrien County sought to create four watercraft access and mooring stations. These stations are located proximate to the federally maintained St. Joseph River Harbor, the principle private recreational marinas within the harbor basin, the newly constructed Harbor Shores Redevelopment Project, and the Whirlpool Corporation North American Headquarters campus. Station 3 included the upland park improvements within the Berrien County riverfront property.
Abonmarche, in partnership with Berrien County, Cornerstone Alliance, the St. Joseph Improvements Association, and the State of Michigan, created an upland plan for Station 3 of the St. Joseph Harbor Mobility Project. The Abonmarche team provided concept development, local permitting/approval gathering, renderings, survey, construction document preparation, bidding, and construction administration. The new space has become an eye-catching gathering space, featuring connections to public walkways, a colored concrete plaza space, benches, shade canopy, and landscape improvements.
