The City is issuing a Request for Proposals to retain a consultant to provide engineering and architectural services for the project referred to as The West River Wall – Planning and Preliminary Design through a matching grant received from the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the New York State Environmental Protection Fund. The West River Wall site for this project is located on a riverfront site adjacent to Exchange Boulevard on the west side of the Genesee River, directly east of the Corn Hill Neighborhood within the Center City Downtown District. The site extends from Corn Hill Landing south to the Ford Street Bridge in the City of Rochester. The length of the wall to be studied is approximately 2,150 feet. This section of wall is characterized by a crumbing concrete flood control wall, overgrown vegetation, trail deficiencies and lack of public access to the River and its view sheds
The project will be undertaken through consultant engineering and landscape architectural services with experience in artistic architectural solutions, waterfront development, landscape architecture, environmental reviews, civil engineering, survey, structural and geotechnical inspection, river wall design, and trail planning and design. The consultant shall ultimately provide schematic plans, master plan, color renderings, preliminary design drawings, cost estimates, and an overall implementation strategy for the wall and adjacent property.
The consultant team shall demonstrate collective experience in (at a minimum), innovative and creative architectural solutions, waterfront development, landscape architecture, environmental review, civil and structural engineering, hydraulic engineering, geotechnical engineering, survey, structural inspection, bridge design, and trail planning and design.
