Case Study

The Waterfront Redevelopment

Homestead, Homestead, PA

Date: 1998-2005

Background: In the past, the Homestead Waterfront served as the place where one of the world's most productive steel mills existed. During the 1970’s, the marked decline in steel-making,  Homestead Works was not producing much steel and was subsequently demolished.  Currently thriving along the Monongahela River between  Squirrel Hill and Homestead, The Waterfront is revitalized, and is one of Pittsburgh's newest destinations for shopping, dining and nightlife.

Senate Engineering Company’s Responsibilities

Senate was the sole consultant to the Waterfront in Homestead.  This project involved developing a 280 acre abandoned site into a commercial center. Project surveying responsibilities began with a boundary survey of the entire Homestead works property. This was followed by aerial control for photogrammetry to be used in the design of the Waterfront complex. Senate was responsible for the design and layout of approximately 16,500 LF of new roads and related utilities providing service to numerous parcels. Senate was also responsible for twenty four subdivisions of the existing property, and site development for many of the parcels, including construction stakeout for incoming businesses.
