William A. Dunlap Homes

Langan developed a comprehensive landscape master plan to guide future capital improvements at William A. Dunlap Homes, one of the oldest public housing projects in New Jersey originally constructed from 1939 to 1940. The 11-acre site consisted of an extensive network of open space and 17 two-story buildings with 156 apartments for low and moderate income families. Langan was responsible for implementing the first phase of site and landscape improvements. These improvements included new pedestrian walks and outdoor gathering spaces, decorative fencing with brick piers, new development signage, landscape planting, soil erosion control, trash enclosure and outdoor clothing lines. Design challenges included the preservation of mature trees and maintaining access to apartments during construction.
