Buildings will resemble barges at New Jersey waterfront park

July 05, 2011 |

Two new buildings will be constructed in River Bridge Park, a four-acre redevelopment on the Hackensack River in Carlstadt, N.J. The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission engaged DMR Architects, Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., to redevelop the former Barge Club property and design small facilities for boat storage and visitor services. The design borrows elements from early 20th-century river barge design and incorporates reclaimed wood salvaged from old vessels. The park itself will incorporate salvaged anchors, channel markers, and dock mooring bollards. A new open-air educational pavilion will also be on site, and wetlands and native plantings will be introduced to the park and marina, which is expected to open this year.
