The full restoration of the lighthouse to its original state is expected to be realized by Summer 2024. Learn more about the competitive RFP process to provide architecture and preservation services below.
Titanic Memorial Lighthouse, located in the Titanic Memorial Park at the corner of Pearl Street and Fulton Street, is a formally accessioned artifact in the collection of the South Street Seaport Museum. A memorial created to honor RMS Titanic’s passengers, officers, and crew who perished when the ship sank after collision with an iceberg, the lighthouse was dedicated in 1913 on the anniversary of the ship’s sinking.
One of the Museum’s principal restoration goals is careful conservation of exterior and interior lighting to allow for reactivation. The work will also allow for the evaluation of the tower structure and its concrete base in order to determine if work is required to ensure its integrity and stability prior to needed repairs, cleaning and painting. As part of the restoration process, Jan Hird Pokorny Associates will also work with the Museum to develop appropriate interpretation for this precious public artifact and memorial.
Scope of services includes schematic design, design development, Landmarks Preservation Commission approval, construction documents, bidding, construction administration, and closeout.
