New Marina Offers Access to Cleveland Waterfront

New transient marina in downtown Cleveland provides boaters with easy access to a variety of attractions.


The marina includes 52 slips and a ‘floating’ amenities building with showers, a laundry and restrooms. Associated lighting, security and signage were also included in the scope of work. Kokosing Industrial was the selected to provide full professional design-build services which included architecture, engineering and general contracting. Kokosing Industrial self performed the underground utilities and sitework. Kokosing Industrial also provided the pile driving services to secure a high-quality, floating dock system. Kokosing Industrial led the team to provide the Owner with controlled project costs and constructability solutions. The project was designed to the Owner’s budget and contracted with a design-build Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). Kokosing Industrial successfully completed this project with zero safety incidents.


The City of Cleveland responded to a major need to add high-quality recreational access to its waterfront with the development of a new marina at the North Coast Harbor. The new transient marina brings ambitious boaters looking to enjoy the recreation and amusement that downtown has to offer including three major league sports teams, the Rock N’ Roll of Fame and Museum, the Great Lakes Science Center, and numerous world class restaurants all within walking distance of the North Coast Harbor.
