Institute Master Plan
|Client:||City of Wrangell|
The 134 acre Wrangell Institute Property on the shore of Shoemaker Bay was the home of the Wrangell Institute constructed in the 1940’s. The site represents the largest undeveloped property in the community. Through a series of public meetings and based on our economic analysis, it was determined the master plan should create a vibrant self-supporting mixed use neighborhood that meets local needs within a recreation setting. The preferred master plan integrates an educational campus, development of a senior assisted living facility, and small retail and commercial development surrounded by a range of housing opportunities. The master plan integrates the adjacent harbor and waterfront park through a trail and open space network within the property. Single-family and multi-family housing lots are located to allow a phased development as the market demand expands. Corvus Design led the team of architects, civil engineers, survey and economists to create a community endorsed phased master plan, estimate, and preliminary subdivision plat for this historic waterfront site.
