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.
