American Creosote Works Superfund Site

Architectural Affairs collaborated with CH2M Hill, a multinational development and consulting firm, to assist the City of Pensacola and its residents in deciding how best to reuse the 18 acre American Creosote Works Superfund Site.

Architectural Affairs' role was to lend their expertise in the visioning process as well as provide a local presence familiar with the community, its character, and its history, building upon their experience working with the City on several redevelopment projects. They also provided sketches illustrating the three dimensional possibilities of the finalized plans.

The team worked for several months conducting three public workshops with a final presentation to the City in October of 2003. The results of their findings included a review of stakeholder and community input and planning and zoning considerations, a best-use analysis with alternatives, and a funding and cost analysis. Architectural Affairs helped the planners create a development plan that was beautiful, meaningful, and feasible for the residents of Pensacola.
