Kenall > Projects > Historic Allen’s Park Redevelopment

Allen’s Landing Park is a 1.76-acre park on the south bank of Buffalo Bayou at the confluence of Buffalo and White Oak Bayous (the original Port of Houston) and commemorates the founding of Houston in 1836. Under two overlapping contracts, Kenall supported revitalization efforts at the Park.

Kenall provided architectural and engineering programming, design and construction management services, resulting in repair and stabilization of a historical 1911 bulkhead and development of new park areas, enhancing downtown development and emphasizing the historic area. Our work included hard and soft landscaping for the park area, engineering solutions for the repair and stabilization of the existing concrete bulkhead and the design interface with adjacent public use areas and other downtown redevelopment activities. We coordinated and managed the project work interface with adjacent construction on Commerce Street, with METRO’s work on the Main Street Bridge as part of the Main Street Rail Program, and with adjacent property owners to ensure that access to their property was maintained during the 10-month construction schedule.
