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.

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.

West Crescent Avenue Mixed-Use Development

OVERVIEW
This mixed-use development includes a new Borough Hall office, recreation space for the community, and a four-story, 70-unit residential building with a mix of market rate apartments, senior affordable housing, and first responder housing. Langan provided site plans and stormwater management design calculations for the Borough Planning Board application, prepared an Environmental Impact Statement, and coordinated the building layout, programming, and utilities for the Borough Hall, residential, and warehouse buildings. We performed a field inspection for our traffic impact study, taking inventory of roadway geometry, traffic control, and location of adjacent driveways and intersections. Additionally, we submitted applications to NJDEP for a Flood Hazard Area Verification and Freshwater Wetlands Letter of Interpretation – Line Verification, and the Borough Planning Board for Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval and Minor Subdivision approval.

Neumann Leather Redevelopment

OVERVIEW
Langan is providing multidisciplinary redevelopment services for this site, the home of the former Neumann Leathers Factory. The project includes a mixed-use center with industrial arts space, office space, retail and amenity uses, and residential units, and involves the renovation of portions of the site buildings, demolition of specific structures, and design and construction of three major buildings. The overall redevelopment scheme is anchored by the principals of transit-oriented development, with the nearby Hoboken train and ferry terminals, and sustainability. Green roofs and a neighborhood-scale stormwater management system, incorporated into the interior plaza space, are anticipated to address localized stormwater management issues. The project is targeting LEED Platinum certification, as well as certification under the LEED for Neighborhood Development program.

Via Lofts

OVERVIEW
As part of the overall revitalization of northwestern Hoboken, Langan is providing site/civil engineering, natural resources permitting, and environmental investigation and remediation oversight for this 44-unit mixed-use urban redevelopment project. The LEED Platinum-certified project features a green roof area that was specifically designed to comply with the city’s target of creating a minimum of 25% green roof area on all new buildings. The project includes a rooftop runoff capture and reuse collection system to supply green roof irrigation water, reducing demand on the city’s potable water supply and also reducing the project’s overall impact on the city's combined sewer outfall system.

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.

The Glasshouse

OVERVIEW
The Glasshouse is a five-story, residential mixed-use building with over 300 apartment units, ground floor restaurant and retail space, and indoor parking. The project is extremely environmentally sensitive because of the location within the floodplain, site contaminants, and the ACT II process. Langan’s environmental team facilitated the ACT II process that helped to procure funding; addressed site contaminants and underground storage tanks; and developed a soil characterization and management plan to optimize re-use and disposal. Our site/civil engineers coordinated with the DEP, Allegheny County Conservation District, and City of Pittsburgh to develop a stormwater management plan that met City and DEP requirements while working with the site constraints.

950 Market

OVERVIEW
The existing building at 950 Market is being demolished to construct a 12-story development that consists of a hotel, residential units, and retail. Langan is providing multi-disciplinary services. Because the structure comprises the majority of the site, an important aspect of our site/civil engineering services is the stormwater management design. The site is adjacent to BART and MUNI tunnels, which was a key consideration in providing appropriate recommendations for foundation and shoring design. The development is subject to San Francisco's Article 22A (Maher) Ordinance, which requires that site history and soil sampling be performed.
