Project Overview

The Marina Park project encompasses a 10.5-acre site and involves new construction of a public park; a 24,000-square-foot Community and Sailing Center building; a 23-slip marina; a reconstructed 19th Street restroom building; a freestanding playground lighthouse feature; themed playground; outdoor fitness circuit; parking lots; and frontage street improvements.

The park will also be home to the new 6,100-square-foot Girl Scouts Leadership Center, which is being funded entirely by the Girl Scouts of Orange County.

Construction Updates:

With the new Marina basin now complete, all efforts have turned to completing the underground utility work, frontage improvements and constructing the various buildings that will be in the park. Below you can see the new Sailing Center and Community Center taking shape with the foundations complete and the block & steel building structure at about 90% complete. One can now start to see the iconic tower element rising out of the building.

In addition to the building construction, our contractor KPRS has completed the new sidewalk and frontage improvements along Balboa Boulevard, 18th Street and West Bay Avenue. The new 16” water main crossing the property is complete and some site improvements and parking lot curbs are now in place as seen in the pictures. The foundation and underground work for the new 19th Street Restroom facility is also complete as can be seen in the picture below. The Marina Park project is currently tracking ahead of schedule to reach the planned completion date of Spring 2016, and is tracking slightly under the overall projected budget.
