Willets Point Redevelopment

The redevelopment of Willets Point, a 23-acre region adjacent to Citi Field, will create a new mixed-use neighborhood. Langan is providing multi-disciplinary services to develop the first 8-acre parcel, which includes 1,100 units of affordable housing, publicly accessible open space, a public elementary school and new infrastructure. Langan’s environmental team developed and implemented a waste characterization plan to determine the site’s eligibility for the Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP). To prepare the site for future development, Langan provided preliminary site/civil services for several thousand linear feet of new NYCDEP sewer and water infrastructure. Langan’s geotechnical group was heavily involved in the design of the linear utilities due to the site’s poor soil quality and high groundwater table. Langan’s survey group performed mobile mapping services to produce high-quality topographic information quicker than through traditional methods.
