Document Description
The proposed project is located on the "Wye" portion of Stearns Wharf. Currently in the project area is the Sea Center building and associated outdoor touch tank and the Nature Conservancy building. The proposed project includes the removal of these buildings and construction of a new two-story building comprising a total of 6,327 sq.ft. The project would result in an increase of 3,212 sq. ft. of new non-residential square footage. The additional square footage would allow for additional educational and exhibit space, office/workroom space for Sea Center and Nature Conservancy staff, and an elevator. The proposed new Sea Center building would have a maximum building height of 29'6". The existing 659 square foot outdoor touch tank would be removed and replaced with a 614 square foot outdoor oceanography lab. The applicant proposes to construct a platform to the east of the proposed building that would be cantilevered on top of the existing Wharf deck to project five feet beyond the existing edge of the Wharf. On the south side of the new building, the applicant is proposing public restrooms. Demolition and construction of the new Sea Center building is estimated to take approximately 18 months to complete. During certain phases of demolition and construction, access to the Wye portion of Stearns Wharf will be restricted or prohibited to protect public safety and secure the project site.
