Olive + Wooster (87 Union Street)

Olive + Wooster is a six-story mixed-use building with 299 residential units, street-level retail, outdoor dining, two rooftop courtyards, and podium parking located on a 2.6-acre site. The building connects two major downtown neighborhoods in New Haven and offers an enticing and safe neighborhood geared toward the urban pedestrian. The streetscape design draws on the rigid structure of the building, incorporating linear banding to fold the vertical building lines horizontally onto the pavement. Trees removed during construction were upcycled into tabletops featured in the interior amenity space to promote sustainable design. Langan provided multidisciplinary services for this project, including landscape architecture, site/civil, traffic, and survey.
