Select Mixed-Use Redevelopment Experience

Langan provides an integrated mix of engineering and environmental consulting services in support of mixed-use developments worldwide.

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.
