The USS Midway was an aircraft carrier of the U.S. Navy. Commissioned a week after the end of WWII, Midway was the largest ship in the world until 1955, as well as the first U.S. aircraft carrier too big to transit the Panama Canal. Decommissioned in 1992, she is now a museum ship at the USS Midway Museum, in San Diego, California, and the only remaining U.S. aircraft carrier commissioned right after WWII ended that was not an Essex-class aircraft carrier. 

Project Description

The proposed Veterans Park project would preserve the existing surface parking lot on Navy Pier and add a public park above the pier-level parking deck. The approximately 5.7 acre elevated park level would consist of approximately 4 acres of park area and 1.7 acres of plaza area. The parking level would accommodate approximately 512 parking spaces.

Scope of Work

Working closely with the Port of San Diego, DWC provided consulting services in connection with the museum’s “Veterans Park” development concept.  The scope also included Project Management of Consultants and Community Outreach.

Project Resolution

The USS Midway postponed the development.
