BergerABAM assisted the Port of Pasco with strategic planning by assessing the opportunities and constraints of developing the
600-acre Big Pasco Industrial Center. BergerABAM worked closely with Port Commissioners and staff to identify the site’s most plausible development option and prepared a draft design master plan, development standards, and an updated development plan. Flexibility was a key feature to encourage continuous long-term growth and development. The plan proposed economic development catalyst tenants, such as high-technology manufacturing, manufacturers of food processing equipment, fabrication plants, commercial warehousing and distribution, and specialty manufacturing.
BergerABAM led master planning and produced construction documents for the development of Osprey Pointe. We designed the first commercial building and public space connection to the waterfront. The conceptual master plan created a continuous circulation system connecting walkways, buildings, parking, and public spaces. A unified landscape theme integrated stormwater and public amenities to establish a unique identity for the site. The landscape design and development standards focused on sustainable water practices by incorporating drought-tolerant/native plants to reduce the need for irrigation and raingardens to collect, clean, and infiltrate stormwater on site. This approach eliminated the need for an additional outfall into the Columbia River. Osprey Pointe Business Park is an excellent example of an environmentally sustainable and aesthetically pleasing design.
