Langan in Jersey City & Hoboken
Langan provides an integrated mix of engineering and environmental consulting services in support of land development projects. Langan is the largest engineering and environmental consulting firm headquartered in New Jersey. Founded 50 years ago, our roots are in Hudson County, with Langan playing a key role in the renaissance of Jersey City and Hoboken. In fact, we have completed more than 1,000 projects in those cities. We are the go-to consultant for a variety of developers, architects, and other design/construction partners who count on Langan’s expertise and knowledge related to the complex permitting processes and challenging subsurface conditions that impact many projects.

Langan 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.
Langan’s engineers helped develop a stormwater management approach that allowed for the storage of a volume of stormwater equal to the 10-year storm across the entire site of 700 Jackson. This far exceeds the normal regulatory requirement that the redevelopment would have been subject to, which would have required no stormwater detention on the site because the redevelopment actually increases the amount of pervious surface on-site.
Taking this challenge one step further, Langan’s engineers worked with the local sewage authority to implement the design of a cloud-based outlet control into the stormwater management system, allowing the sewage authority to remotely monitor the combined sewer system, its capacity and flows in real time, and regulate discharges from the on-site stormwater detention system to avoid further overwhelming the combined sewer overflow system. This system is a significant example of one tool that can be used by urban, coastal cities to mitigate the negative impacts of combined sewer overflow systems.
The 700 Jackson Redevelopment and Resiliency Park 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.
Langan was responsible for the environmental investigation of the site, the remediation of an identified “hot-spot,” and the overall waste-class certification and disposal process for the hot-spot and site-wide historic fill materials as part of the site’s overall remediation. The project site is located in the regulated flood hazard area and significant design and coordination was required to obtain a flood hazard area permit from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
