Royal Caribbean, in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is working to revitalize and expand the Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne, NJ. The public-private partnership between Royal Caribbean and the Port Authority is called Cape Liberty Cruise Port, LLC. The partnership is developing this $55 million project, which includes construction of a state-of-the-art guest terminal, 900-car parking garage, and pier improvements.

The new terminal is the home for Royal Caribbean’s next generation of cruise ships, Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, which began service in November 2014 and 2015 respectively.

As part of a Design-Build project, O&S designed the 900-space parking garage as a three-bay precast structure using a single center ramp with two-way traffic and a one-way traffic pattern on the outside bays creating two side by side helixes for the vertical circulation up and down the facility. Garage features include two stair and elevator towers, five lanes of ingress and egress, and PARCS revenue control system. The garage is a five-level facility garage designed with the capacity for a future horizontal expansion.

O&S provided prime design services from conception through construction. O&S performed site analysis, functional design, architectural, structural, and MEP design services for this project.
