Geotechnical Investigation for Queen Mary Waterfront Development at Port of Long Beach (2016-2017)
In January 2016, the City of Long Beach approved a 66-year lease contract for the Urban Commons, a Los Angeles-based investment company, to take over the master lease for the Queen Mary and about 43 acres of surrounding waterfront land. Urban Commons plans to develop the site turning it into an iconic and world-class entertainment venue.
Urban Commons selected GAI as the geotechnical engineer for this world-class, mega project. The improvements at the site included the design and construction of about 500,000 square feet of retail buildings, hotels, parking structures, and entertainment centers. GAI conducted a comprehensive field exploration program, followed by extensive laboratory testing and engineering analysis, and provided a comprehensive geotechnical engineering study report which will be used as the basis during the design and construction phases of the project.
