A port is a location on a coast or shore containing one or more harbors where ships can dock and transfer people or cargo to or from land.

Port locations are selected to optimize access to land and navigable water, for commercial demand, and for shelter from wind and waves. Ports with deeper water are rarer, but can handle larger, more economical ships. Since ports throughout history handled every kind of traffic, support and storage facilities vary widely, may extend for miles, and dominate the local economy. Some ports have an important, perhaps exclusively military role.

A cruise home port is the port where cruise-ship passengers board [or embark] to start their cruise and also debark [or disembark] the cruise ship at the end of their cruise. It is also where the cruise ship's supplies are loaded for the cruise, which includes everything from fresh water and fuel to fruits, vegetable, champagne, and any other supplies needed for the cruise. "Cruise home ports" are a very busy place during the day the cruise ship is in port, because off-going passengers debark their baggage and on-coming passengers board the ship in addition to all the supplies being loaded. Currently, the Cruise Capital of the World is the Port of Miami, Florida, closely followed behind by Port Everglades, Florida and the Port of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Ports often have cargo-handling equipment, such as cranes [operated by longshoremen] and forklifts for use in loading ships, which may be provided by private interests or public bodies. Often, canneries or other processing facilities will be located nearby. Some ports feature canals, which allow ships further movement inland. Access to intermodal transportation, such as trains and trucks, are critical to a port, so that passengers and cargo can also move further inland beyond the port area. Ports with international traffic have customs facilities. Harbour pilots and tugboats may maneuver large ships in tight quarters when near docks.

PIER 55

The Hudson River Park Trust in New York City voted unanimously on February 11 to approve a plan to build a one hundred thirty million [$130 m.] dollar pier, with lush greenery and an outdoor performance space, on the Hudson River, according to Business Insider.

The so-called “floating park” is the brainchild of billionaire mogul Barry Diller and his wife, the fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg. The 2.4-acre park, officially called Pier 55, will rise out of the river, one hundred eighty-six [186'] feet from its shorelines, near West 14th Street. Various news reports, including one posted on the website DNAinfo.com, state that the park is scheduled to open to the public sometime in 2019.

Diller, the chairman of IAC/InterActiveCorp, will contribute one hundred thirteen million [$113 m.] dollars for construction, and will finance the park’s maintenance for twenty [20] years.

The city is kicking in seventeen million [$17 m.] dollars, and the state of New York will provide eighteen million [$18 m.] dollars toward an expanded public esplanade between Bloomfield and 14th streets.

Diller’s largesse is the single biggest private donation to a public park in New York’s history, according to Capital New York, eclipsing a one hundred million [$100 m.] dollars gift that hedge fund manager John Paulson bestowed on the Central Park Conservatory in 2012.

More than half of the performances held at the pier’s seven hundred [700] seat amphitheater will be free or low-cost, according to a twenty [20] year lease awarded to Diller’s P55 nonprofit organization. [That lease includes an option to renew for another ten {10} years.]

Diller told Capital New York that the nonprofit would produce works “across all forms of performance—musical, musical comedy, concert, pop concert, spoken theatrical play, ballet, etc.” P55’s board members include the film and theater producer Scott Rudin, movie director Stephen Daldry, and theater director George Wolfe,

To deflect criticism that this is just another land grab by a rich entrepreneur, the Hudson River Park Trust said it is establishing a community advisory committee comprised of local residents and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, which would consult on the park’s programming and ticket distribution.

The next step will be for the developers to apply for permits form the Army Corps of Engineers and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.  The goal is for construction to begin next year.

 

The Viewpoint Belvederes

Capital New York reports that Heatherwick Studios has been commissioned to design the floating park. Heatherwick is notable for having built a garden bridge over the Thames River in London. It will work with landscape architect Signe Nielsen, who designed the Tribeca section of the Hudson River Park.

The new pier would replace the existing, albeit crumbling, Pier 54, which once served as one of Hudson River Park’s main performance venues.

Capitol New York and the New York Times report that the new pier would stretch three hundred twenty [320'] feet by three hundred twenty [320'] feet between Pier 54’s old pile field and the pile field that once supported Pier 56. 

 

The parallelogram-shaped pier would be built atop three hundred [300] concrete columns that range in height from fifteen [15'] feet to sixty-two [62'] feet above the water level.

Established by Thomas Heatherwick in 1994, Heatherwick Studio is recognised for its work in architecture, urban infrastructure, sculpture, design and strategic thinking. Today a team of 160, including architects, designers and makers work from a combined studio and workshop in Kings Cross, London.

At the heart of the studio’s work is a profound commitment to finding innovative design solutions, with a dedication to artistic thinking and the latent potential of materials and craftsmanship. This is achieved through a working methodology of collaborative rational inquiry, undertaken in a spirit of curiosity and experimentation.

In the twenty years of its existence, Heatherwick Studio has worked in many countries, with a wide range of commissioners and in a variety of regulatory environments. Through this experience, the studio has acquired a high level of expertise in the design and realisation of unusual projects, with a particular focus on the large scale.

The studio’s work includes a number of nationally significant projects for the UK, including the award-winning UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010, the Olympic Cauldron for the London 2012 Olympic Games, and the New Bus for London.

Thomas is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects; a Senior Research Fellow at the Victoria & Albert Museum; and has been awarded Honorary Doctorates from the Royal College of Art, University of Dundee, University of Brighton, Sheffield Hallam University and University of Manchester.

He has won the Prince Philip Designers Prize, and, in 2004, was the youngest practitioner to be appointed a Royal Designer for Industry. In 2010, Thomas was awarded the RIBA’s Lubetkin Prize and the London Design Medal in recognition of his outstanding contribution to design.

In 2013 Thomas was awarded a CBE for his services to the design industry.
