Fair Lawn Promenade

OVERVIEW
A brownfield site, once owned by Kodak on Route 208, was in need of environmental cleanup and redevelopment. Langan provided landscape architecture services for the mixed-use development designed on 10 acres of unusable land. The main entrance to the site from Route 208 is designed as a gateway featuring low decorative knee walls adorned with decorative lighting and accent plantings. The promenade and centerpiece of the site boasts a 30-foot-wide by 256-foot-long area providing two small patio spaces and a permeable paver pathway in a park-like setting, complete with decorative benches and lighting that winds through a cleverly designed landscape.

Maxwell Place

OVERVIEW
The Maxwell Place development consists of a large, luxury residential waterfront development. Numerous industrial structures once occupied the project site, which was partially reclaimed from the Hudson River. The 12-story residential buildings, with a combined footprint area of about 170,000 SF, were constructed in three phases, along with associated below- and above-grade parking structures. The adaptation of the foundation systems to the highly variable subsurface conditions created substantial cost and schedule savings for the development/construction team. The project also included the first ever deep dynamic compaction improvement in the history of Hoboken.

Goya Foods Headquarters

OVERVIEW
The new headquarters consists of an approximately 615,000-SF warehouse on a 40-acre site. Langan provided site/civil, geotechnical, surveying, traffic engineering, landscape architecture, and natural resources permitting services. Our multi-disciplined approach greatly simplified a complex development process, thereby bringing great value to Goya. Additionally, Langan recommended a concrete modulus column subgrade improvement program, which was designed to support a high slab loading with a minimal settlement tolerance. This solution saved approximately $8 million as compared to a standard deep pile foundation.

Cranbury Logistics Center

OVERVIEW
Langan prepared a general development plan submission for this 395-acre parcel adjacent to the New Jersey Turnpike. Langan’s integrated team of site/civil, geotechnical and environmental engineers and scientists prepared a design to construct 2.8 million SF of warehouse distribution on approximately 150 acres of the site. The full build-out of the business park includes three cross-dock warehouse buildings and is one of the largest wetland mitigation projects in state history. Proper remediation of the site required impact to nearly 50 acres of contaminated wetlands. In order to minimize impacts to forested areas, sparsely vegetated uplands were excavated to form shallow concave grades to allow water to accumulate in these areas, creating an amphibian habitat. An extended 10-acre stormwater basin was also used to create additional wetlands mitigation by designing planting shelves and islands within the basins to allow for wetland plantings to grow.

Crate & Barrel Distribution Center

OVERVIEW
The Crate & Barrel Distribution Center located on Half Acre Road in Cranbury, NJ consists of two buildings - a 300,000± SF warehouse and a 375,000± SF warehouse (expandable to 650,000± SF) with a Crate & Barrel Outlet store. Notable project features included a fast-track design/permitting schedule and the incorporation of a two-phase construction schedule.

Matrix Business Park at 7A

OVERVIEW
Located just minutes from exit 7A of the New Jersey Turnpike, the Matrix Business Park has become prime real estate for the industrial/distribution market in New Jersey. Langan’s involvement with the Matrix Business Park at 7A began in 2005 with the design, permitting, and construction administration of an approximately 900,000-SF distribution center for KTR Capital Partners in the western portion of the park. Langan then designed and permitted three speculative facilities in the eastern portion of the park. Langan performed detailed site development design of the three additional facilities, totaling approximately 1.65-million-SF of floor space, and obtained the required entitlements from the Township, County, State, and local soil conservation district. To date, Langan is responsible for the design, permitting, and construction administration of five of the distribution facilities in the park totaling 2.8-million SF of floor space.

Matrix Global Logistics Park

OVERVIEW
Matrix is developing a logistics Park on the West Shore of Staten Island. The former Staten Island Marine Development (SIMD) property will have four industrial and distribution buildings, including a fulfillment center and a warehouse. Langan provided site/civil and geotechnical engineering, environmental planning services, and obtained the site development approvals. Because the site does not front on a NYCDEP sanitary sewer, our utility scope included design and NYSDOT, NYCDOT, NYCDEP, and NYSDEC approvals of a mile-long sanitary sewer force main, which lies under the West Shore Expressway and in a NYC street. Our geotechnical engineers compiled historic information, new investigations, and robust analysis to streamline the foundation approval process and reduce the time and expense of a full field investigation.

Burlington Neck Warehouse Redevelopment

OVERVIEW
Langan helped engineer the redevelopment of the 130-acre former Hercules Burlington Plant, which ceased manufacturing operations in 1992, into four new warehouses totaling 1.69 million SF. The site required environmental remediation and is now capped with processed dredged material (PDM) under the supervision of NJDEP. Approximately 300,000 cubic yards of PDM were used to raise grades necessary for site development. With the help of Langan, a new stormwater management system design enabled preliminary “pad ready” construction to continue after a failed attempt to construct two wet ponds near the Delaware River.

Project Goliath Fulfillment Center

OVERVIEW
The Project Goliath Fulfillment Center involved redevelopment of the former Randall Park Mall in North Randall into an e-commerce fulfillment center. The former mall was the largest in the world when it was constructed, but later began to decline and eventually closed in 2009. Three former anchor store buildings that remained on the 70-acre site were demolished during the due diligence phase to make way for the new 855,000-SF warehouse. Langan provided a full range of services on the project from due diligence through construction to help shave several months off the typical project delivery timeline. The fast-track nature of the project, and the aspects associated with redevelopment of a former mall site, required the close integration of survey, geotechnical, environmental, site/civil, and traffic services.
