Queen Mary Island, Utility, Energy & Infrastructure Assessment← Back to Projects
A Long Beach icon inspires a new waterfront entertainment destination
The Queen Mary arrived in Long Beach in 1967 and has been a hotel since 1972. Ship operator Urban Commons has big plans for the iconic Long Beach attraction. They hired us to support the planning of Queen Mary Island, their visions for a modern, $250 million entertainment complex with the Queen Mary as its anchor. The 45-acre development will include retail, an amphitheater, restaurants, nightlife and a hotel. P2S completed a compressive utility, energy, and infrastructure assessment of the landside property next to the former transatlantic luxury liner.
This project’s objective was to understand the current utility infrastructure and its ability to support the redevelopment plans. We evaluated the utilities within the development boundaries which included: a boiler plant and steam system; a central plant and chilled water system; domestic water, electrical, natural gas, sanitary sewer, storm water, and telecommunication systems. P2S also developed a model based on current infrastructure and energy load profiles, which we used to estimate future loads. Urban Commons used the data we generated from this model as a foundation for their future redevelopment plans for Queen Mary Island.
