Maceo May Apartments

OVERVIEW
Maceo May Apartments is the first building to go vertical within the Treasure Island master-planned redevelopment. The six-story affordable housing building provides 105 homes for formerly unhoused veterans, as well as amenities including community rooms, laundry, parking, a healing garden, culinary gardens, outdoor pet areas, a playground, and a roof deck. This project is the second all-electric affordable housing building in San Francisco and provides protection from rising sea levels. Langan’s environmental team completed a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment to evaluate land use practices, site conditions, and the potential presence of hazardous substances in the soil and groundwater. We also completed the Maher Ordinance application and conducted closure reporting for the site.

Wegmans – Norwalk

OVERVIEW
Wegmans is set to open its first location in Connecticut with a two-level, 95,000 SF facility and adjoining multilevel parking structure on an 11.5-acre site. Langan conducted boundary and topographic surveys, geotechnical and environmental assessments, traffic impact studies, and zoning code review, and provided concept plan refinement to confirm permit compliance. Project challenges included removing underground storage tanks and obtaining approval for signal upgrades and roadway/pedestrian improvements from the Office of the State Traffic Administration and the Norwalk Transportation, Mobility, and Parking Department. Langan’s integrated approach helped the project achieve regulatory compliance, environmental responsibility, and community integration.

The Battery

OVERVIEW
The Battery project involves the renovation of the abandoned Delaware Power Station, which supplied power to Philadelphia until 2004. The 500,000 SF facility includes a two-story residential addition, event spaces, and offices. Langan developed an investigation plan to obtain depths and locations of utilities within the site, including the outfalls. We also worked closely with the Philadelphia Water Department to develop a design that met stormwater management regulations and limited project improvements through the agency’s right-of-way. Following the building renovation, the next project phase will provide a 300-space parking lot, landscaping, stormwater management, site lighting, and a 900-foot waterfront trail connecting the site to the Delaware River Trail in Penn Treaty Park.
