Located in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island and scheduled for completion in early 2017, the New York Wheel is certain to be one of the City’s major tourist attractions.  EMWPC is working closely with New York Wheel LLC and their construction team on waterfront and marine transportation aspects of the project.  Our scope of work includes planning and design of a new water taxi dock and assisting with maritime logistics.  Components of the Wheel will be fabricated in off-site locations throughout North America and will be shipped via ocean transport to a marine terminal in the Port of New York and New Jersey.  Utilizing roll-on roll-off, the components (some as large as 1,600 tons) will be transported by barge from the marine terminal to the site.  EMWPC is coordinating the design of the temporary construction dock and consulting on the logistics of the intra-port cargo transporation.
