Fleischman Pier Reconstruction

Improving Waterfront Access with Redevelopment

The City of Peekskill engaged Matrix to provide services for the Peekskill Fleischman Pier on the Hudson River. The pier is an early 1900’s industrial pier which was formerly used by the Fleischmann Yeast Company to transport molasses to their Peekskill factory and has become a tour destination. Matrix prepared a bathymetric survey of land under water under pier and along the adjacent shoreline. A recent upland topographic survey was combined with the bathymetry by Matrix and compiled into one digital mapping product to be used for the design of the reconstruction.

The City also engaged Matrix to evaluate the pier’s physical condition, evaluate options for its redevelopment, obtain the necessary regulatory approvals, and prepare construction documents for its reconstruction.  Matrix, and our subconsultants, first conducted geotechnical, topographic, hydrographic, and ecological surveys to assess the existing structure and environment and engaged with stakeholders to develop a range of redevelopment opportunities that envision an active waterfront use.  Matrix prepared concept plans and cost estimates, and subsequently engaged with regulatory agencies and the local stakeholders to recommend a plan for implementation.
