New public use coming for Ladner waterfront

The City of Delta has issued a request for bids for a consultant to prepare preliminary and detailed designs for upgrades to the wharf structure at the Seven Seas site on Chisholm Street in Ladner Village.

The consultant will also support the city during the tender phase and provide construction administration and inspection services.

The city notes the project consists of converting the wharf, which requires structural upgrades, into a park space capable of hosting public events.

The wharf is a concrete deck that is supported by precast concrete piles.

Although the Seven Seas building was demolished in 2022, the wharf was left intact.

The city began using the wharf as a temporary public park, but plans to implement long-term park space as part of the Ladner Village Revitalization program. 

The consultant will prepare a preliminary design report, detailing at least three options, and the advantages, disadvantages and cost estimates of each, the city notes in its request for bids, adding that the consultant will also support public engagement sessions.

The city also says there is a derelict wharf located directly beside the property, at 4849 Chisholm St., and the consultant will provide optional pricing to permanently remove that structure.
