A COMPLETE JOURNEY FROM SQUARED TO HIP
Journal Square is in the midst of a major revitalization. The KRE Group has retained Dresdner Robin to assist them in manifesting their vision of transforming the Journal Square transportation hub into a new destination for living, shopping, and enjoying the Manhattan skyline. It’s a tall order for an area which has not seen any new large-scale development in decades.
Adjacent to the Path Station, this highly anticipated mixed-use development consists of three residential towers with 1,800 units with a strategically designed rooftop, a pedestrian plaza, and 30,000 square feet of retail space.
We provided environmental, planning, civil engineering, landscape architecture, and survey services for this project. Our environmental services included property due diligence investigations and preliminary assessments, site investigations, asbestos surveys, and remediation cost estimates. We also managed the necessary investigation and remediation under the oversight of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) for soil and groundwater, removal of underground storage tanks, geophysical investigations, excavation and off-site disposal of contaminated soils, and construction oversight.
Our site-civil engineering included multiple local design approvals and grading, drainage, and utility system infrastructure. Within the newly transformed Magnolia Avenue plaza and roadway, we designed the new public utilities, such as sanitary sewers and water mains, as well as a new storm water management system which accepts runoff from the public right-of-way in addition to the site itself.
