Elizabeth Logistics Center
To meet demand for warehousing close to the Port of Elizabeth, Langan obtained approvals for a new 290,400-SF warehouse development. The new development is conveniently located south of Newark Airport and just off exit 13A of the New Jersey Turnpike. The site design was challenging because of many limitations ranging from soil conditions to regulatory requirements. Langan obtained Site Plan approval from the City of Elizabeth, which required a use variance and parking variance. The zoning required 900 parking spaces whereas a variance for 140, much closer to the anticipated need, was approved. A Stream Encroachment Permit and a Freshwater Wetlands Permit were obtained from NJDEP. A stream study using Hec-Ras was performed to obtain the NJDEP approvals. Soil Erosion and Sediment Control approval was also obtained.
