Gansevoort Peninsula

OVERVIEW
This project is transforming a 5.5-acre former industrial site into a green oasis as part of the continued build-out of Hudson River Park. Public amenities include a resilient rocky beach with direct access to the river, boardwalks, a large sports field, a dog run, fitness areas, pedestrian promenades, restrooms, and concessions. Langan advised on measures concerning coastal erosion and sea level rise, provided recommendations for keeping the park above high tide, and designed the surcharge program to stabilize and raise the site. Additionally, we designed the stabilization of the park edges while mitigating the unique challenges of each area: the southern edge is affected by ocean waves and consists of an engineered rock slope, the northern edge contains a marsh protected by a stone revetment, and the entire peninsula is subject to the reversing currents of the Hudson River.

54/60 Wilton Road

OVERVIEW
Located on the site of the former Save the Children headquarters, this project includes the renovation of the original office building and construction of Bankside House, a 12-unit waterfront residential development. Langan prepared an A-2/T-2 boundary and topographic survey of the project area, which was then used as a base map and provided construction stakeout around the site. We also performed a traffic assessment and coordinated with the Connecticut DOT while conducting a geotechnical preliminary investigation; provided site inspections and assessment, environmental oversight, environmental construction administration, and closure reporting; and prepared the site layout, grading and drainage plan, soil erosion and sediment control plan, landscape planting design, site lighting design, and stormwater management design and report.

Eversource Training Facility

OVERVIEW
The Eversource Training Facility project involved updating a 66,500 SF building, demolishing a section of the structure, and constructing a 30,000 SF addition for the energy provider. The addition includes a new pole and “leak street” training yard, pole storage, and site improvements across four parcels with wetlands and significant grade changes. Langan provided site drawings to address the layout, grading, drainage, and sedimentation and erosion control; assisted with permit applications including a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan; prepared a subsurface exploration and an engineering report to present our findings; and completed the planting and site lighting design. We also prepared a stormwater management report that analyzed the required water quality and quantity volumes, measured the on-site drainage network, and estimated the pre- and post-development rate of runoff from the property.

The Halsted – Phase I

OVERVIEW
The first phase of The Halsted development involves construction of a five-story, 56-unit affordable housing building located on 1.1 acres in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood. For Phase I of the project, Langan is coordinating with the environmental consultant for remediation, calculating stormwater management requirements, and preparing permit drawings. Our team also helped the client navigate the city’s entitlement process by providing our local expertise and guidance. Additionally, we separated the site permit review process to expedite initial approvals, keep construction on schedule, and meet timelines for grants and funding set by the Chicago Housing Authority and US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

West Rock Island Distribution Center

OVERVIEW
Located along State Highway 161, the West Rock Island development includes construction of two speculative warehouse buildings totaling 464,000 SF. Langan provided multidisciplinary services for the project, including extensive coordination with the City of Grand Prairie regarding previous filling of the floodplain, which was required to secure the proposed coverage.
