River Place is 13-story mixed-use development overlooking the Cape Cape Fear River and the iconic USS North Carolina. A partnership between the City of Wilmington and East West Partners, River Place features luxury condominiums, high-end apartments, restaurants, a fitness center, a parking garage and other commercial and retail businesses.
McKim & Creed furnished both geomatics and engineering services for the project. Site/civil services involved local and state permitting for site construction, site and grading plans, erosion control plans, and general consultation and coordination with the project team.
A two-story, nearly 50-year-old parking deck was demolished to make room for River Place. Interestingly, McKim & Creed provided structural engineering services for this parking deck when the company established roots in Wilmington in the late 1970s.
