Meydenbauer Bay Park Phase 1
Anchor QEA managed the first phase in the City of Bellevue’s long-term vision to reconnect Bellevue’s downtown to Lake Washington. The project transformed the site from private residential and marina uses to a public park with water-focused recreational use and access, upland recreation facilities, parking and vehicle access, pedestrian paths, habitat restoration, complex utilities, and green stormwater infrastructure.
Anchor QEA led this complex project from design development through construction administration. We also led stakeholder and public involvement, permit approvals, and habitat restoration and on-site mitigation design.
Project construction was completed in 2019, and the project won a Merit Award from the Washington Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects the same year. It then received a Local Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award in 2020 from the Seattle Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
