Located in Door County, Wisconsin, one of the Midwest's most popular tourist destinations, The Village of Egg Harbor is well known for its scenic recreational harbor on Lake Michigan's Green Bay. When their aging breakwater began to fail, Egg Harbor turned to SmithGroupJJR for the design of a new and expanded marina facility.
The firm helped gain public support through town meetings and detailed 3-D renderings, and also helped the village secure $1.58-million in state funding. State-of-the-art modeling and technical analyses were conducted to ensure design integrity, and Clean Marina principles were utilized to minimize environmental impacts.
The design also created a signature public space for the Village, featuring locally designed art, native landscaping, and accessible seating and walkways. The resulting project exceeded all expectations, exemplifying what can be achieved through a comprehensive client/community partnership.
