Front and York

Langan is providing site/civil and geotechnical services for the 1.1 million-SF, full-block, rectangular site located in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn. The building will consist of a 9 story podium and two offset, twelve story towers on opposite corners of Front and York Streets. The development will include 408 condos and 320 rental units and will feature a swimming pool and retail/community space. Langan addressed issues associated with site layout, grading, earthwork, drainage, stormwater management, erosion control, utility connections, on-site vehicular and pedestrian circulation, public right-of-way improvements, and agency permitting. Langan also performed 3D Finite element analyses as part of the foundation design for the towers and podium, taking into account the adjacent New York City Transit (NYCT) tunnel below Jay Street. Our team designed the support of excavation (SOE) system to accommodate a 40-foot-deep excavation, which required multiple iterations with NYCT to obtain approvals.
