To build a new ferry terminal to replace the existing, outdated terminal on Canal St., revitalizing historic downtown New Orleans.
The Canal Street Ferry Terminal project publicly bid twice but was never awarded due to budgeting issues.The Regional Transit Authority solicited the project a third time, but it was on a construction manager at risk basis. During this evaluation, APC with their joint venture partner was required to submit a technical proposal and partake in an interview conducted by a selection board appointed by the RTA. Following the evaluation from the board, it was determined our joint venture was the most competent and best-value due to APC’s combined resources and capabilities.
The new ferry terminal consists of a 4,300 SF building, a new replacement barge with a modernized boarding structure, a 13,200 SF elevated wharf, an impressive plaza on the Canal St. side of the ferry terminal, and a new contemporary landscape to serve as the “heart” of New Orleans’ downtown development revitalization project. APC will self- perform the marine demolition of the existing structure, pile driving, constructing the wharf, and other miscellaneous civil work items required.
