770 House / 7th and Jackson Resiliency Park

OVERVIEW
Langan was part of a design and construction team completing the investigation, demolition, remediation and design of a two-city block redevelopment in northwest Hoboken. Our team implemented the design of a cloud-based outlet control into the stormwater management system for this project, which is located in a coastal city faced with the challenges of global climate change and the impacts of frequent localized flooding, as well as catastrophic-scale flooding issues.

The project includes a large, mixed-use residential building with 424 residential units, approximately 26,000 SF of commercial space, and a parking deck with 415 parking spaces for shared use by residents and the general public. The project also includes three major public areas: a brand new public gymnasium, a public park with open green spaces and a children’s play area, and a public plaza designed for public programming and activities.

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.

This solution saved approximately $8 million as compared to a standard deep pile foundation.
