Coastal Systems convened a design charrette in Frederiksted to develop concepts for a waterfront park, beach, cruise pier, and other site improvements. Teams of land planners, engineers, and landscape architects met with local interest groups to develop conceptual plans for the redevelopment of the area. We secured environmental regulatory permits through the Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Agency of the USVI. Coastal Systems worked closely with our related company, Coastal Systems International, Inc. on preparation of all engineering plans for the project.
Our team has completed Phase I of the project, which consisted of the reconstruction of the waterfront park while maintaining the historical facade representative of St. Croix's heritage. Natural stonework was used throughout the project site in accordance with the local architectural style, enhancing the authenticity of the arrival experience. We landscaped the site extensively, making the area attractive to both visitors and local residents. Phase II of the project, contemplated for the future, will involve the reconstruction of the community waterfront north of the fort and include the recreation of breakwaters, the reconstruction of Paul E. Joseph Stadium, and the restoration of the beach, restroom facilities, retaining pond, utilities, parking areas, and soccer fields.
The Frederiksted Economic Revitalization Project is the initiation of the revitalization of the town of Frederiksted to promote tourism within St. Croix.
