This is the redevelopment of the Greenwich train station. Over the past several years, we has performed the overall site research and analyses of drainage, grading, sanitary sewer and stormwater systems in preparation of designing the overall site plans. We designed the overall site plan and produced the necessary documents for site plan approvals which included the property and topographic survey, site development plan, site grading plan, the site utilities plan and the sediment and erosion controls plan. A new train station is to replace the more than 50-year-old facility in central Greenwich. New retail space, a new movie theater complex, pedestrian and commuter pathways and a privately owned public park are to be part of the $45 million project, which is led by the Ashforth Company, the owner of Greenwich Plaza, the multi-use development on Railroad Avenue that includes the train station. Much of the plaza is slated to be redone. The project will include a public-private partnership between and Town of Greenwich and The Ashforth Company, Metro-North and the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

For this design of adaptive reuse of an existing office building, parking and marina, we provided civil engineering site design services on this redevelopment. Included, was the preparation of plans for site grading, site improvements, utility coordination, sediment and erosion control, parking garage and a drainage impact statement which was used for the local land use process and securing a building permit. Surveying services included ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey,
The redevelopment of the Historic Inn at National Hall, a red-brick Italianate building located on the west bank of the Saugatuck River near the center of Westport, CT. There are several buildings on the mixed-use site including space for office, retail and restaurant uses, as well as a public outdoor plaza along the river. Parking is expanded by adding a level to an existing two-level parking garage. Located within the 100-year floodplain, the project required compliance with floodplain management regulations and heightened environmental sensitivity. In addition to the site design, Redniss & Mead was responsible for seeking and securing approvals from the Westport Flood and Erosion Control Board, Conservation Commission, and Planning and Zoning Commission.
Planning and Zoning services included Applications for Text Change, Special Exception and Site Plan approval for an “extended stay hotel”. The project is an innovative “infill” redevelopment project in a key location in downtown Stamford which includes several properties. Engineering services include engineered plans for construction depicting the design of site grading, drainage, utilities, erosion controls and team coordination. The project required designing an upgrade to an undersized City owned drainage pipe within the roadway. Surveying services include preparing a Property and Topographic Survey, Consolidation and Easement Maps.
Gateway is a transit-adjacent, mixed-use development located on a six-acre parcel of land on the west side of Washington Boulevard, abutting the Metro North Railroad and includes commuter access to up to 500 surplus parking spaces. Pedestrian enhancements include a direct connection to the Stamford Transportation Center (STC) and a publically-accessible, 33,000 square foot park and greenway along the banks of the Rippowam River providing neighborhood linkages to the STC. Approval accomplishments include a Zone Change to the Transportation Center Design District, a text amendment of that Zoning Regulation, and abandonment of a City Right-of-Way.
This 1,300,000 square foot corporate office park is located along 3,500 feet of the Norwalk River. Site planning included the relocation of 2,300 feet of the River; analysis of flood impacts on five completed buildings; environmental analysis and design of impact mitigation such as fish groins and low flow channels; detailed surveys and construction control; and comprehensive permit processing at the local, State and Federal levels. Merritt on the River: We provided Engineering and Surveying services for the construction of a 227-unit residential building (273,635 square feet) and renovation of two existing office buildings totalling
230,000 square feet. Site Engineering included design of storm sewer, sanitary sewer, parking and utility coordination. The project required Conservation and Zoning Board approvals at the local level, as well as Department of Environmental Protection and Department of Transportation approvals at the State level. Access to the site included construction of a bridge crossing over the Norwalk River.
Services were provided for the redevelopment of part of the former Clairol manufacturing plant, to create 304,000 square feet for studios, production, and general office space as well as a potential parking garage.Approvals for a Zoning Text Amendment and Site/Architectural plans were granted for NBC Sports Group to facilitate the next phase of redevelopment of the (37 acre) former Clairol campus with NBC’s relocation from New York to Connecticut.
The new construction of a 140,000sf Home Depot building and garden center included 588 parking spaces and a new intersection. In addition to managing the land use approval process, we produced the site development plans and construction documents depicting the design of site grading, drainage, utilities, erosion controls, intersection design and prepared the Drainage Report. The Zoning Location Survey was used in the building permit process to depict proposed improvements relative to the property boundaries. We also prepared and submitted a CT DEEP Construction Stormwater General Permit application, EPB permit, provided Civil Engineer Construction Administrative services, Construction Surveying and Utility Coordination and, in addition, assisted with State DOT permitting for the new intersection.
The project, located within the floodplain of the Mill River, just east of the river at Broad Street and Washington Boulevard. The project includes approximately 190,000± square feet of retail space on two levels of Target floor space, approximately 16,000± square feet of additional ground level retail space, several levels of above grade, structured parking as well as associated sitework including drainage, utilities, paving, etc. Various permits from City of Stamford regulatory boards were secured including a permit from the Environmental Protection Board (EPB) which required demonstration that the project would not effect the floodplain and that it was designed to meet the governing floodproofing standards of safety for such projects.
