Client: City of Newport Beach

 

Mariners Village

 

Newport Beach, bounded on one side by Newport Harbor and the other by coastal bluffs and residential housing, this business district serves the boating and yachting community, residents of adjacent neighborhoods, auto-orientated convenience needs, and numerous restaurants.

The City previously developed an overall four-phase concept plan for improvements consisting of landscaping, hardscape aesthetics, and traffic calming. This was a result of conceptualizing “vision scenarios” for the future of Mariner’s Mile and outlining possible strategies for upgrading its physical and visual conditions. They also developed guidelines to assist in the implementation of key planning and design elements. Given the eclectic mix of buildings along Mariner’s Mile, the vision document establishes key design principles, promoting thoughtful and tasteful design while allowing creative flexibility. While avoiding an architectural theme, the appropriate use of nautical building materials, is consistent with the history of Mariner’s Mile and is intended to enhance the overall character.

Subsequently, Civil Works Engineers staff, was hired to prepare the construction documents for Phase 1 of the vision, which included proposed landscaping amenities along Coast Highway. This project involved the planting of 22–30 foot high Washingtonia Robusta palm trees along the north side of Coast Highway from Riverside Drive to south of Tustin Avenue. Due to the limited public right of way, some of the trees were planted within private property. Project involved 
replacement of sidewalk to provide space for the trees and to place the irrigation line, relocation of traffic signal conduit, planting of trees and shrub, permanent easements from 9 property owners, and  thorough utility investigation.
