ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AND PROJECT OVERVIEW The design team acknowledges the tremendous amount of work that preceded this current planning effort. Miller & Associates’ 2010 feasibility study provided the design team with an enormous amount of information and data that has served as a benchmark for this current schematic design study. The generous volunteers of Friends of Pump House, alongside the City of Richmond’s Department of Parks and Recreation continue work diligently to preserve The Byrd Park Pump House. These previous efforts and the on-going commitment prove the immeasurable value of this iconic piece of Richmond history. The purpose of this masterplan document is to highlight renovations to The Byrd Park Pump House and the surrounding site for a modern Richmond audience. Renovations will increase accessibility to both the site and building, provide opportunities for historical education, reinvigorate a portion of the James River Park System, provide additional office space for the City of Richmond’s Park and Recreation staff, and allow for event rentals and other programmic uses to occur within the building. Every proposed feature of the site intentionally addresses existing limitations while celebrating the site’s character. Dedicated on-street parking, ADA-compliant ramped pathways, walkways along the canals, and improved

opportunities for boating and other activities enable a diverse population of visitors to better access and connect with the site. The form of new pathways, canal walls, and rows of trees reflect and reinforce the rectilinear geometry of the existing building and canals, emphasizing the historical infrastructure and the way it is situated in and shapes the landscape. The first floor of the 1905 Addition houses the buildings main reception, bathroom facilities, opportunities for museum display and historical signage, space for DPR offices, and the addition of a new vertical circulation core including a grand stair and glass enclosed elevator. The New Pump House (1881-1884) remains as an in-occupied interpretive exhibit space viewed from the first floor addition and the existing mezzanine. The area above the Pump House (level 2) will be returned to it’s original use as a large leasable and programmable event space. Flexibility in event typologies allow for varied opportunities on the existing dance hall space. Ancillary spaces allow for guest circulation and arrival, restrooms, storage, pre-function rooms, and catering. Undisturbed views of the adjacent canals, the wooded site, and the James River further cement The Byrd Park Pump House as one of Richmond’s most unique venues.

Please join us in many great adventures.

Located on the North Bank of the James River, the multi-use Pump House was constructed on the same site as the first canal lock system in the USA. The downstairs was a public-use pumping station and the upstairs was a venue for lavish events and dances until the mid-1920’s.A revitalized Pump House would be the crown jewel of the City of Richmond’s already stellar park system. However, the building needs water and sewer hookups, roof repairs and an outside elevator constructed to comply with ADA requirements before a certificate of occupancy will be issued for the building. A certificate of occupancy is necessary before public access or any use of the Pump House can be granted. Through your donations and volunteer efforts, we as a community can revitalize the Pump House and surrounding park to its former glory.

SITE ANALYSIS Centrally located yet seemingly isolated, a landscape that has been heavily shaped by man yet feels wild and mysterious—the Pump House Park is a case in contrasting character that defines its charm and appeal. The beauty of the architecture and environment and a powerful sense of history beckon visitors, but access to the Pump House—on an island between canals—is challenging, as are the environmental considerations impacting the nature of future improvements: the site’s location in a Resource Protection Area (RPA), 100year floodplain, and conservation easement. Key to the success of the project will be the delicate balance of significantly improving access and the building’s operational capacity, while meeting requirements for stormwater management, impervious surface cover, and the preservation and conservation of cultural, historic, and ecological resources.

In October 2018, Timmons Group completed 1) a topographic and design survey and 2) interior and exterior three-dimensional laser scan surveys. These detailed surveys enabled for accurate schematic design development included in this report, and they will be used for further design development and construction documentation. Timmons Group also completed a preliminary wetland delineation in September 2018 within the original designated survey area (see Appendices). The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers confirmed the delineation in January 2019 with a Preliminary Jurisdictional Determination valid through January 22, 2024.

Additional research and coordination could be conducted to ascertain the exact location of some property boundaries and the right of way along Pump House Drive, as there were discrepancies in the public records. However, the project will be completed entirely on public lands owned by the City of Richmond, and approvals to work on adjacent property owned by the Department of Public Utilities and in the right of way, operated by the Department of Public Works, can be established via interdepartmental coordination.

CENTRAL YET ISOLATED The Pump House Park is centrally located within the City of Richmond. The site is nearly adjacent to the James River, located just downhill from the well-trafficked Boulevard Bridge (“Nickel Bridge”), and in close proximity to the interchange between the Powhite Parkway, Downtown Expressway, and Interstate 195. The site is a unit within the James River Park System and is connected to a large expanse of parks and open space including Byrd Park and Maymont. While readily accessible given its location, the site maintains the feeling of an isolated setting that defines its allure but may also hold it back from becoming one of Richmond’s more popular park sites. The park is also located adjacent to the City’s operational pump house, a secured facility that lends an industrial feel in appearance and sound to the eastern side of the park.

The Pump House Park is accessible is some ways and not in others. In terms of trail connectivity, the park is well-served. It is situated downhill from the Boulevard Bridge, which connects the north and south sides of the James River Park System at this location. It is connected to the North Bank Trail by way of Pump House Drive, and it is located along a designated on-street bike route. The Dogwood Dell Trails for hiking and mountain biking are located uphill across the street, draw regular visitors, and connect the Pump House Park to the Carillon and other facilities in Byrd Park.

Car access and traffic circulation is challenging as there is one primary access point at the intersection of Pump House Drive and Park Drive. Through traffic along Pump House is restricted at a secondary access point on the west side of the park; a peculiar road configuration directs traffic through a private residential development. Access via bus is more limited; the site is three-quarters of a mile to the nearest bus routes in the Maymont Neighborhood, which requires crossing Maymont Park or taking the North Bank Trail to Pump House Drive.

Current plans are underway for improving the James River and Kanawha Canal to connect the park with Downtown to the east. Direct access to the James River is not available at this time. A railroad owned by CSX separates the park from the river, though there are several informal footpaths that visitors use to reach the river. Improved connections here could improve recreational connectivity for hiking, biking, boating, and other activities.

At one time, the site was located on the outskirts of Richmond. As Byrd Park and the Carillon neighborhoods were developed, the park gradually became woven into the urban fabric of the westward-expanding city. The area was annexed from Henrico County in 1906.

The Pump House Park lies at the intersection of six nationally-registered historic districts and sites that represent significant periods in local history. The Pump House itself is a designated site on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and forms a nexus between several eras in the development of transportation and public infrastructure spanning three centuries, including the formation of canals, railroads, and the city’s modern public potable water system. A desktop review (see Appendices) has indicated historically significant resources, including canal and dam infrastructure, in areas adjacent to the park. These findings combined with the park’s status as a NRHP-listed site will require a formal review and permitting process through the Virginia Department of Historic Resources (DHR) should federal funds be used to renovate the site. A Phase I Historic Resources Investigation may be required.

The Pump House is largely surrounded by woods, which makes its emergence all the more dramatic for a visitor arriving either from Pump House Drive or from one of the surrounding footpaths. That vegetation obscures views to the surrounding areas, but there is a vantage point from the second-floor pavilion that affords some wintertime views of the James River. There are also compelling views down the canals on either side of the Pump House—east to other historic pump house infrastructure and west to the impressive CSX A-Line Bridge. Given the NRHP-listed status of the Pump House and some of the surrounding properties, a formal review of the viewsheds within a designated area of impact would be required through the Virginia Department of Historic Resources (DHR) should federal funds be used to renovate the site.

The sound of water defines the site, especially when the river is high and the canals are at high capacity. The flow of the water coursing through the canals, the falls at the terminus of the upper Pump House Canal (that once powered the pumping operation), and the din of the rapids along the James River of characterize the experience of visiting the site. (At the time of this report, utility work required the canals to be drained to minimum water levels, as seen in the Existing Site Conditions.) The adjacent operational pumping operation and railroad, as well as the traffic on the nearby bridges create some noise pollution, though the roaring trains traversing the CSX A-Line Bridge and passing by the Pump House make for a quintessentially Richmond experience along the river.

The castle-like appearance of the Pump House is due in no small part to its situation in the landscape. Perched on an “island” between two canals, the building is surrounded by water that courses by and through the building’s infrastructure itself. Encompassing this heavily sculpted landscape of canals, railroad, and waterworks is the wilder realm of the adjacent parklands and the James River. There is not a stark interface between these built and natural environments; rather, the two have melded together as the Pump House and the two lower canals fell into disuse and nature crept in. The site’s proximity to the canals and river are central to its singular character but pose regulatory requirements and planning considerations.

The site is located within the Chesapeake Bay Protection Areas (CBPA), a state designation that restricts the scale and type of development and requires particular stormwater management practices. Most of the site is located within the Resource Protection Area (RPA), the 100-foot buffer adjacent to perennial water bodies and the more environmentally critical of the two CBPAs. Likely interventions on the site including passive recreational facilities such as trails and the historic status of the building and property are exempt to mitigation requirements, except for water quality. The size of the project and location within the RPA will require a Water Quality Impact Assessment (WQIA), Richmond Stormwater Management Permit (RSMP) application, and a water quality plan to be reviewed by the City of Richmond’s Water Resources division.

A survey of onsite vegetation has not been conducted; however, a mixture of native, nonnative, and invasive species is present on site. A tree inventory and further study of existing vegetation should shape specific planting choices and landscape management practices. As the park site is public property, the project will need to abide by the City’s Tree Ordinance, which requires a one for one replacement of the total tree caliper value removed, excluding invasive species removal. Determination of specific tree removal will need to be made by a city arborist. Additionally, the portion of the park located to the south side of the uppermost canal (the Pump House Canal) is located within a conservation easement, which places restrictions on tree removal. The grantees of the easement will need to approve tree removal. See Appendices for an exhibit showing the area of the conservation easement.

A desktop review of wildlife resources, namely federally- and state-designated threatened and endangered species, found only one listed species that will require regulatory review by the Virginia Department of Game of Inland Fisheries (DGIF). Peregrine falcon nests are located within two miles of the site; given their location close to Downtown, this species is unlikely to pose limitations on the project. Further coordination with both DGIF and the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will be needed for compliance with the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA), should federal funding be used on the project.

IMPROVING ACCESS IS KEY Access to and circulation around the Pump House Park are challenging given: the situation of the building on an island between canals, steep slopes between Pump House Drive and the Pump House Canal, and the separation of the site from the James River because of the railroad. A major thrust of renovations for both the site and the building must be improving general access and meeting accessibility requirements for those with limited mobility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Additionally, there is no parking lot on or adjacent to the site, limited on-street parking at present, and little room to add off-street parking. At 36-feet wide however, the right of way along Pump House Drive could provide ample parking for increased daily use and standard events, with the removal of current parking restrictions. Nearby parking at the North Bank Trail trailhead (to the east) and Dogwood Dell (to the north) could provide overflow space in the case of larger events. One existing loop trail extending from the building to the west affords visitors an opportunity to traverse the fairly level historic tow paths of the canals. There is little wayfinding signage beyond the entrance kiosk (at marker E on this map), and most of the interpretive signage along the trail is badly damaged with graffiti. A new signage system would greatly enhance the trail experience throughout the park. There are informal footpaths extending to the west and south across the railroad that some visitors use to reach the river; however, crossing the tracks is illegal. There is a significant opportunity to connect Pump House Park with the river and with footpaths that extend eastward to Texas Beach. Access to the riverfront will need to be negotiated with CSX and could perhaps could be achieved via a pedestrian bridge, as it has in the past elsewhere in the James River Park System. A potential greenway is under study that would tie the site to points westward along the canal system.

UTILITY UPGRADES NEEDED

P

The facility will require significant utility upgrades to function as an occupiable building. The level of work needed will depend on the final build-out, but every service will need to be studied and connections established or improved. There is currently an electrical connection, but the capacity to serve the building and its programmed uses will need to be verified. There are no City of Richmond utility services currently connected at the building; this includes water, sewer, and gas. (Gas may not be needed). Sewer is located in the Hydro-Electric Pumping Station next door, and water is likely at the Department of Public Utilities (DPU) facilities nearby. Verizon Communications is currently in the process of improving their fiber optic infrastructure in the vicinity of the Pump House, including running new lines to the DPU Maintenance and Office Building.

ABOUT 3D LASER SCANNING Early in the project, Timmons Group provided the design team with a 3D laser scan of the building. This scan serves as a record in time, archiving a snapshot of the current state of the building. 3D Laser scanning provides the design team with a holistic product of 3D data. The laser scanner works by rotating a pulsed laser light at high speed and measuring reflected pulses with a sensor. Laser scanners can capture an enormous amount of data, potentially a million unique points each second. The scanning process is often the first step in providing accurate and realistic site and building data. A complex web of 3D point data allows designers to build accurate 3D models which then becomes the basis for the new design intervention(s). The laser scan allows for rigorous quality control all while allowing major time savings benefits.

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE The IQ process begins with research into the historical development of Byrd Park Pump House site and context. Historical and archival research is compiled in the Historical Chronology of Site Development, which is an illustrated time-line of land ownership and use. The research phase discovers and compiles historic maps and photographs, architectural and landscape drawings, primary source archival documents, press articles, and secondary sources. The Historical Chronology may serve as a basis, reference point, and source of ideas for the subsequent development of story-telling and theming, for future design phases of the project, as well as for interpretation, exhibition, and artwork purposes.

THE BYRD PARK PUMP HOUSE | SCHEMATIC DESIGN | JUNE 7, 2019


1830’s - 1870’s

1874-1876

1876

In 1830 The Old Pump House, located at the foot of today’s Hollywood Cemetery, pumped water to the old Marshall Reservoir. With the growing concern of water contaminants and being tainted by the nearby three cemeteries, the eventual closure of the Pump House was inevitable.

The new Byrd Park Reservoir was built in 1876 to expand capacity and improve the City’s waterworks. This reservoir, still active, was associated with the New Pump House.

The new 1876 Byrd Park Reservoir expanded the city’s waterworks. It is a highly visible component of Byrd Park, prominently located at the south end of Boulevard. A public walkway encircled the top of the reservoir. This is an early example of combining utilities with a well-designed public amenity.

1874-1907

1883-1924

Wilfred Emory Cutshaw, who oversaw The New Pump House’s design and construction, was a grand figure in the development of Richmond. During his 34-year tenure as City Engineer, Cutshaw’s endeavors included roads, sidewalks, schools, armories, parks, markets, and the construction of Old City Hall.

The Byrd Park Pump House, also called the New Pump House, is a wonderfully executed late 19th century example of the Gothic Revival architectural style, applied to a municipal industrial building. The facility pumped water uphill from the canals to the Byrd Park Reservoir, the city’s main water supply.

The Pump House was a popular gathering place in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Its scenic location at the Three-Mile Locks of the canal system inspired Cutshaw to design the building as a social venue as well as a waterworks.

1883-1924

1905

1924-1956

There was an open-air dance hall on the second floor above the equipment room. The pump house had the reputation of being one of the only buildings in the country designed and used as both a public utilities building and a social hall. Richmonders could board a flat-bottomed boat at Seventh Street and take a leisurely ride up the canal to the pump house and its festive ballroom overlooking the woods and water below.  

It was expanded in 1905 to accommodate new pumps that might provide the capacity needed for emergency use, in the case of a large fire in the Lee District. The 1905 Annex was also designed in the Gothic Revival style. The open air pavilion had limited social activities because it was open air. The open side walls allowed water to leak on the pump machinery below. Window infill and electrical service were added by 1899, allowing year-round use of the 2nd floor pavilion.

By 1924, when a new hydroelectric plant, designed by Carneal and Johnston was built on the east end of the property, the building was vacated and closed. The Pump House had its machinery sold off for scrap metal before the outbreak of World War II.

The property reverted to the city of Richmond after the church sale. In the 1990s, Richmond City opens Pump House or Three Miles Lock Park, which surrounds the historic building. Historic Richmond Foundation nominated the New Pump House to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.

The non-profit Friends of Pump House, and its team of volunteers, are dedicated to revitalizing the historic architectural character of the Byrd Park Pump House and its surrounding park infrastructure as to herald a revitalized Pump House as the “crown jewel of the city of Richmond’s already stellar park system.”

ABOUT

SOURCES

To understand the unique history and context of The Byrd Park Pump House, a detailed historic chronology was developed. 3north uses this process to create a time-line of significant events relevant to the property and organization. As design decisions are made in the IQ and master planning process, this unique history can be respected and celebrated. Research is conducted through the collection of historic photographs, drawings, writings, and other accounts. Previous master planning efforts are also collected, studied, and integrated into the chronology.

This chronology is a document which can be supplemented and reexamined moving into the future. As new sources and narratives are discovered, the dynamic story of The Byrd Park Pump House will undoubtedly grow and change - this is something to be both expected and celebrated. This changing narrative and history can help to inform decisions as The Byrd Park Pump House continues to grow and move forward.

IQ DEFINITION

IQ OBJECTIVE

IQ PROCESS

IQ PRODUCT

IQ, an acronym for “Intangible Qualities,” refers to those inherent or intrinsic characteristics of a site, campus, building, or institution that have coalesced over time to form its unique “sense of place.” An IQ Study identifies, defines, and categorizes these characteristics, and uses them to create a conceptual and visual pattern book. The IQ Study, which serves as a project guidebook for the client and design teams, includes design concepts and guidelines that address all aspects of a project. This study addresses various aspects of architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design, the renovation of existing structures and the construction of new structures, and the development of comprehensive spaces and graphics.

The specific objective of the IQ Study is to ensure that design and development decisions made by the Richmond community, stakeholders, and its design team are based on genuine characteristics that originate from The Byrd Park Pump House. The overall objectives are to enhance The Byrd Park Pump House and it’s presence within the Richmond community, draw inspiration from the unique nature and history of the site, and celebrate the authentic spirit of the Byrd Park Pump House.

The IQ Study process discovers and identifies a myriad of interconnected elements and issues by studying the history, context, mission, and goals of a business and its property, and then translates them into visual forms and design concepts. Merged with historical and contextual studies are a clear identification of the company’s mission, goals ,and aspirations for renovation, growth, and development, and the consideration of optimum branding.

The end product of the IQ process is the creation of a pattern book of design elements unique to the property. Included are a Historical Chronology of The Byrd Park Pump House, a bubble chart of The Byrd Park Pump House IQ Characteristics, and three primary Conceptual Themes that form the basis of the design for The Byrd Park Pump House.

The ultimate goal is to create, through thoughtful design, a cohesive identity with a compelling integrity and unique character for The Byrd Park Pump House.

The IQ process consists of many types of studies: historical and contextual studies discover the characteristics of geographic location, site and landscape features, and context; a unique combination of these IQ Characteristics helps to create the story of The Byrd Park Pump House and it’s site. In addition, the IQ Charrette brings together a number of expert practitioners, community members, staff, and friends of Pump House to explore and discover in depth all aspects of current operations in order to envision its future. These people work together as members of small teams to help envision the future of The Byrd Park Pump House.

The IQ Study ensures that, in the final product, all aspects of The Byrd Park Pump House are characterized by consistent authenticity and characteristic integrity that have emanated from the The Byrd Park Pump House IQ Charrette and IQ Study.

Based on these studies, design palettes are then developed to help visualize the conceptual themes, which are translated into form and design elements. IQ Dashboards, which synthesize the design palettes are then developed to reveal an overall and consistent conceptual design image for The Byrd Park Pump House. Finally, Proof Points are created. IQ Proof Points are proposed, stand-out features of the Byrd Park Pump House that simultaneously convey style and substance. The IQ Proof Points represent those ideals and elements that make The Byrd Park Pump House a special and memorable place for the community of Richmond.

Participants represent a wide range of The Byrd Park Pump House Park stakeholders. A small number of people from key groups are included, ensuring that viewpoints from a broad range of groups and people are captured. Included are members of the Richmond Community, The Parks and Recreation Department of Richmond, Friends of Pump House, the design team, and subject matter experts. After studying and analyzing findings and characteristics (through research, discovery and charrette processes), the IQ Study identifies and defines three Conceptual Themes that characterize The Byrd Park Pump House. The themes create an underlying, consistent story line that serves to conceptually inform design decisions for a wide spectrum of project issues. As the design process progresses over time, the conceptual themes become interrelated and expressed physically in elements of design, graphics, and branding; as a result, they help to form and maintain a consistent, unified identity for The Byrd Park Pump House.

The IQ process begins with research into the historical development of The Byrd Park Pump House. The Historical Chronology may serve as a basis, reference point, and source of ideas for the subsequent development of story-telling and theming, for future design phases of the project, as well as for interpretation, exhibition, and artwork purposes.

The Charrette phase pairs participants with designers and consultants in a two-day intensive, collaborative, and creative work session that serves to define objectives, identify priorities, and build consensus among all of the involved stakeholders. Participants work together to discover, conceptualize, and give creative form to the project’s story.

PHASE III When IQ characteristics are organized and analyzed, they inevitably coalesce to reveal several IQ Conceptual Themes, which are developed to express key concepts in the property’s story. Themes are expanded upon to develop visual palettes and dashboards that express these themes graphically. Proof points are key action items that build upon these IQ Themes.

CANAL RESTORATION

WATER FEATURE

PUBLIC ACCESS

The restoration of the Kanawha Canal at Pump House presents a unified vision of preserving an important part of history which was surveyed and planned by President George Washington. The Three Mile Lock portion of the Kanawha canal, at Pump House Park is a centerpiece for Richmond’s rich history and would bring added energy and buzz to the Pump House Park.

The presence of a water feature, both inside the building and on the grounds, allows for an artistic opportunity which grounds itself in the fundamental nature of the historic Pump House - an intuitive engineering feature which pumped water to the Byrd Park Reservoir. A new water feature creates movement, sound, a sense of water, peaceful serenity, and tranquility.

Once a burgeoning social scene, the Pump House and it’s grounds beg to be utilized again. By modernizing the site and the building, the newly renovated Pump House celebrates all patrons who wish to revel in it’s majestic beauty.

Local visitors, and guests from out of town would be able to revel in a particularly important part of Richmond’s history with the restoration of the canals to their grandeur and glory.

Pairing with a local artist to create a truly unique installation adds to the intricacy of the existing Pump House and it’s celebrated site.

CENTERPIECE OF JAMES RIVER PARK SYSTEM

Pump House Park is an opportune location for access to the James River. The continuation of the James River Park System trail from Pump House Park to the James River provides additional opportunities for exploration, exercise, and nature watching. Various opportunities such as canoe, kayak, walking, and biking are shared amenities to providing access to the James.

By preserving the existing character of the Byrd Park Pump House, the design respects the history of the building and it’s many unique moments. By touching the existing building lighting, the architectural intervention compliments the existing historic character. The overarching goal is to preserve as much of the existing character as possible, and in doing so the design presents itself as a minimal intervention spearheaded by thoughtful, carefully executed details.

Gothic revival in the United States was an inevitable stylistic import. Wilfred Emory Cutshaw oversaw the building, design, and construction of the Byrd Park Pump House. The Byrd Park Pump House is a truly one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece, and through celebrating and preserving the historic Gothic nature of the building, members of the Richmond community can continue to revel in it’s majestic beauty and fantastical dramatics.

The confluence of energy at Pump House Park is evidenced by the myriad of activities which will take place on site. The building itself manifests itself as a flexible social venue celebrated through it’s historic nature. The surrounding park is centered on dichotomy of the natural and the constructed. Man and nature are harmoniously in conjunction with Pump House as the pinnacle of modern infrastructure and social engagement.

The Pump House symbolizes both an historic feat of engineering as it’s past self, with the promise of becoming the centerpiece of the James River Park System in the future. As a beacon for all those who visit - the Pump House will continue it’s legacy as an integral part of Richmond’s history.

Precise care and thought is given to the types of materials used, which contribute to the existing historical pallette associated with the Byrd Park Pump House. The site modifications are considerate, with the goal of providing accessible routes and pathways focused on preservation, permeability, and sustainability.

By incorporating interior and exterior lighting, the magnificent character of the Pump House, in all of its splendor, will be highlighted as the the wonderful 19th century work of art it was always destined to be.

A beautiful harmony arises when the natural world so effortlessly co-exists with the constructed. Here the Pump House shines as a beacon on the James River.

PROPOSED SITE IMPROVEMENTS The design for a renovated Pump House Park marries the distinct sense of place that already exists here with the right balance of intervention to ensure greater public access to the grounds and building, elevate the experience of arrival, and bring heightened awareness to the park’s built and natural elements. Every feature intentionally addresses existing limitations while celebrating the site’s character. Dedicated on-street parking, ADA-compliant ramped pathways, walkways along the canals, and improved opportunities for boating and other activities enable a diverse population of visitors to better access and connect with the site. The form of new pathways, canal walls, and rows of trees reflect and reinforce the rectilinear geometry of the existing building and canals, emphasizing the historical infrastructure and the way it is situated in and shapes the landscape. Recommendations for improved access and connectivity to the site highlight numerous opportunities to integrate the park into a local network of trails that will elevate the Pump House as a destination for a variety of users—pedestrians, cyclists, and those arriving by vehicle or boat. Design palettes for hardscape, planting, signage, and lighting should serve as the basis for creating a unified experience across the park and will be further developed in future project phases.

BUILT + NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS

KEY

The interplay between the natural and man-made realms is a powerfully resonate theme that drives the conceptualization of a renovated Pump House Park—from the position of the building in the landscape, surrounded by water and woodlands, to the sounds of water inside the belly of the building itself. How can the design capture, bring forth, and accentuate the essence of what is already there, and underlies the allure of the place, without detracting from it? The direction lies in a mindset of minimal intervention that achieves all the necessary improvements—namely in access and circulation, as well as stormwater management requirements— within the existing footprint of the park. With that restraint, however, every opportunity should be made to reawaken and harness the kinetic energy of the place to draw visitors into interaction with the landscape and spark social engagement that fuels a sense of community on site.

THE SITE EXPERIENCE

KEY

Arriving at the park from Pump House Drive, visitors find a tree-lined street striped for parallel parking and lined with sidewalks leading to the main entrance. An elevated drive with specialty pavers, flush with the curb and sidewalk, slows and calms traffic and delineates the arrival and drop-off point. Entering at a small plaza, visitors look out on a striking water feature formed by a stream cascading down repurposed granite blocks embedded into the slope. The Pump House looms across the canal; during pleasant weather, its upper windows might be open, the sound of a party with a live band emanating out from the second-floor event space.

With the addition of ADA-compliant ramps and a the opening of the pedestrian bridge on the east side of the site, access to the site and building and the flow of pedestrian circulation are greatly improved. Up to 145 parallel parking spaces can be striped along Pump House Drive (including five accessible spaces), and additional parking is available at nearby sites.

Walking westward, visitors cross an improved access drive and a relocated and reoriented boat launch and boat dock. The nearby granite quarry is preserved and used for interpretive talks and other educational programming. Crossing the existing steel truss bridge, the visitors reach a landing at the top of another ramp and a set of granite-slab stairs leading to the main entrance of the building. A bridge spanning the lower canal leads visitors to an overlook—with a stunning view of the Pump House— located above a wide basin in the canal where boats arriving from Downtown dock.

SITE FEATURES

01

A switchback ramp lined with stone walls and naturalistic plantings leads to a promenade along the north side of the Pump House Canal. A well-planted modular bioretention system borders the promenade, collecting and treating stormwater runoff. A wide stretch of stairs descends to the canal edge, creating a place for people to gather and experience the water up close.

FOCAL POINTS

KEY

Focal points for unique programming are located across the site. A water feature—imagined loosely as water cascading over stone blocks— is benched into the hillside between Pump House Drive and the canal below. This feature reflects the dynamism of water across the site and serves as a defining aspect of the arrival experience. A relocated boat launch (moved to the opposite side the bridge) and new dock on the Pump House Canal improve access to the James River & Kanawha Canal for traditional bateau and small non-motorized watercraft such as canoes and kayaks. On the south side of the building, canal boats arriving from Downtown will eventually reach the Pump House, where passengers will disembark on a wooden dock with the majestic building looming across the water.

MITIGATING FOR THE LEAST IMPACT

KEY

Development on the site will require managing stormwater runoff and mitigating the impact of any design interventions. Given the location of the site in the Chesapeake Bay Resource Protection Area (RPA) (described in Environmental Analysis) and in a conservation easement, the site improvements should minimize impact on the existing hydrology and use the least amount of additional impervious surface cover possible, thereby reducing the footprint required for stormwater management features or the need to pay into off-site mitigation practices. This conceptual stormwater management plan achieves these goals and meets requirements of the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act and Virginia stormwater regulations for stormwater quantity control; while the addition of pervious pavement and stormwater structures will address quality, the capacity of these systems and the changes in land cover with the site improvements may necessitate the purchase of mitigation credits for phosphorous removal. At present, the site’s soils are characterized by low permeability and high runoff, so drainage typically sheet flows downslope to the canals. Along Pump House Drive, which has curbs and gutters, stormwater flows into drop inlets connecting to the stormwater system that eventually reaches the canals. Existing drainage patterns and stream circulation patterns will be maintained as with the addition of stormwater structures to capture and treat stormwater that would flow into the canals or into existing drop inlets. A portion of Pump House Drive will be raised to be flush with a new sidewalk and this paved area will be graded to drain to the north; thus, the drainage area will be altered there. To improve access across the site without increasing impervious surface area with conventional hardscape, a significant portion of the hardscape will consists of pervious surfaces. Existing hardscape areas will be replaced and new pathways will be built using pervious pavements or decking that is pervious. A system of underdrains will direct flow that infiltrates this hardscape towards a new bioretention system, curb inlet filter box, and stone swale or existing stormwater structures. A swale along the north side of Pump House Drive will capture stormwater coming from downslope from Byrd Park. A fourto eight-foot wall along the access drive’s northwest edge will be required to limit the grading impacts along the vegetated slope. An underdrain along the back edge of the wall will outlet to the surface near the proposed boat ramp. The newly graded slopes along the ramps on the north and south side of the Pump House Canal will be revegetated with a combination of trees, shrubs, groundcover, and lawn.

MATERIALS & FEATURES Conscious of stormwater runoff and seeking to meet system-wide requirements for the James River Park System conservation easement, pervious materials comprise most of the new and replacement hardscape, including interlocking pervious paver systems for the Pump House Drive arrival area and walkways, porous asphalt or concrete for the access drive to the boat launch and dock, and decking. Additionally, existing hardscape materials on site will be salvaged and repurposed on site wherever possible. This includes a stockpile of granite blocks located on the north side of the Pump House Canal and the cobbles used in the existing boat launch on the east side of the steel truss bridge. Where there is more than 30 inches of vertical fall from the edge of a walkway, railings are necessary for safety purposes. A product such as steel cable railing shown here is recommended, particularly along the walls of the James River and Kanawha Canal (lower canal) and along some of the elevated decking and portion of some of the ramps. Railing could also be added alongside the canals where the water surface is close to the adjoining walkway and fluctuation in the water level could at times create a 30-inch drop. The desired effect for the north side of the Pump House Canal, however, is to allow for access to the water (without a railing barrier). A length of the promenade along the canal has wide stairs that descend to the water’s edge, as shown here at the Chicago Riverwalk.

MATERIALS & FEATURES Plantings will be selected, designed, and managed with sustainability, resilience, and ecological benefits in mind. Overall, given the location of the site, there is strong preference for native plant species, complemented with regionally-adapted non-native species. The major plantings on site include the following:

FOUR-SEASON INTEREST

 Large deciduous street trees along Pump House Drive  Rows of flowering trees along some walkways  Denser plantings of shrubs and herbaceous plants along the two ramped pathways  Lawn in the form of ecolawn or low meadow in areas to reduce maintenance associated with both more heavily planted landscape beds and conventional lawn care. Tree planting will need to meet the requirements of mitigating for the removal of existing trees per the requirements of the City of Richmond’s Tree Ordinance.

SHORELINE/RIPARIAN PLANTINGS

FLOWERING TREES

POLLINATOR-FRIENDLY PLANTINGS

NEW SIGNAGE SYSTEM A new coordinated system of signage including entrance, wayfinding/directional, and interpretive signs will welcome and orient visitors to the site and guide and educate them as they explore. These precedent images display a color and material palette that draws on the background colors of the existing landscape and building as well as complementary hues and materials suited for the historical, industrial, and natural settings of the site. The use of brighter accent colors for easy visibility, particularly in wayfinding signage, is encouraged; see Color Palettes for possible options. Color and material selections could incorporate unique branding and identification established for the park site. There is also the possibility of drawing on City of Richmond standards, such as the wayfinding signage shown here. This system of signage could perhaps best be implemented on a wider basis across the surrounding area and neighborhoods. The current City standard for wayfinding is color-coded by zones tied to different neighborhoods and districts. CITY OF RICHMOND PRECEDENTS: WAYFINDING STANDARD (LEFT) & T.

The eastern portion of the mezzanine staircase with access to level 2 has been removed due to head-height conflicts. The new vertical circulation core provides the second means of egress for patrons accessing to the second floor. The staircase on the west side of the mezzanine remains as is. The mezzanine construction is repaired and painted as needed. Horizontal cables have been added to ensure railing is to code. A new stair with a new wooden platform provide access to the exterior staircase on the west side of the building.

The design for level 2 emphasizes the importance of retaining the social atmosphere once present at the Pump House. The newly added staircase and elevator bring patrons to a large flexible reception space. The existing dance hall, including the architectural trim, glazed openings, ceiling, and plaster work are all restored. Flanking the dance floor on the west side of the building are amenity spaces, including mens and womens rest rooms, a catering kitchen, and a flexible prefunction “green room” for event preparation. A new wood floor covers the existing staircase opening on the east side of level 2.

The new monumental monolithic steel stair takes patrons from the new platform up to level 2. The intermediate landing provides views of the existing Pump House and the historic preserved exhibit. Steel tube stringers constitute the major structural support for the stair with solid wood treads on top of the stringers. Viva Solo glass guard rail and associated handrail allow for a translucent stair. Glass encloses the bottom of the stair to showcase monolithic stair construction. Linear LED lighting casts light on the existing stone walls. The new enlarged opening for the stair on level 2 is enclosed with Viva Solo glass guardrail.

SCHEMATIC DESIGN PHASE The initial phases of design work generated three schematic design concepts A, B and C, from which one, Option C, was selected by DPRCF for further development into the master plan. Additional work was done (Concept D) on the selected concept to rework the overall geometric form of the layout—to better reinforce existing geometry in the buildings and canals—while maintaining the same footprint and intent.
