Willets Point Redevelopment


Willets Point is a 23-acre region adjacent to Citi Field that has long been overlooked and underutilized. The area is undergoing a massive redevelopment, which will add 2,500 100% affordable homes (including workforce housing and homes for individuals, families, and low-income seniors), 115,000 SF of open space, a 25,000-seat soccer stadium, 650-seat public school, 250-room hotel, and improved infrastructure.

Langan has played an active role in the redevelopment for over a decade, providing multidisciplinary services since the beginning. We led the project through the Brownfield Cleanup Program; developed a soil remediation plan that incorporated future building, utility, and roadway foundations into the environmental design; and provided preliminary site/civil services for thousands of linear feet of NYCDEP sewer and water infrastructure. The team was also heavily involved in the design of linear utilities because of the site’s soil quality and high groundwater table, and performed traditional surveying and mobile mapping services for the entire site and surrounding roadway network.

Once complete, Willets Point will reflect and serve the many diverse communities that call Queens home. This project will drive long-term economic growth and investment in the region, bringing together locals, visitors, and sports fans in the heart of “the world’s borough.”
