Metropolis Towers

Metropolis Towers, (also known as Gregory Apartments), is a high-rise residential/retail development project in downtown Jersey City. Langan was selected to perform asbestos investigation and abatement services for the demolition of existing buildings onsite, soil investigations for chromium and historic fill contaminants, preparation of a Remedial Work Plan for the chromium, and prepare demolition plans prior to construction of the development. Design included all aspects of design for city, county and state permitting. Site constraints include the underground railroad path tunnel, city sewer interceptors and floodplain which encroach upon the site. Site design, stormwater management, sewer and utility design, landscape, lighting and soil erosion control engineering services were performed considering all site constraints while meeting regulatory requirements.
