The next phase for the part of the harbor also known as the TAVI property is underway. Eyre Baldwin and partner CCRF have put together a concept for that, according to Baldwin will “tie and pull” disparate parts of the town together, connecting Mason Avenue, the harbor, and the beachfront.
At the core are a seawall and promenade, with floating concrete docks that will have the capacity to service and provision megayachts up to 360 feet in length.
The yacht provisioning center will exist on the footprint of the old center that has just been torn down.
Plans for a small restaurant or tiki bar and an eventual larger restaurant are also part of the concept.
The team envisions public access that will tie the yacht center with the multi-use trail and the beachfront, as well as creating a synergy with the existing town park near the jetty. Sand control is an issue that is under design, such as trying to find a way to keep sand from blowing off the beach and around the corner onto the property. Excavation and long-term controls, such as a larger stone jetty trap sand are potential solutions. Beach enhancement near the dock is also being considered.
Additional town parking potential could be also be added.
Below are the concept drawings supplied by Mr. Baldwin.
