The New Greenwich Plaza/The Greenwich Transportation Center

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.

URBY Stamford/Parcel 38

4.3-acre excavation that came to be called “the hole in the ground”, undeveloped for more than 20 years, was approved by the City of Stamford Zoning Board to turn it into a multimillion-dollar residential project. The project when complete will consist of 11 apartment buildings, including 272 studios, 273 one-bedroom and 127 two bedroom apartments. Ten of the buildings would be connected in a square-like shape with one building jutting out of the middle. The site also features a 5,090-square-foot public cafe at the street corner with outdoor seating. The 83,000-square-foot outdoor area also includes a pool, chessboard, fire pit and green space.

Stamford Health

We were on the team that facilitated a property swap between Stamford Hospital and Charter Oak Communities to make two developments a reality. As part of the swap, Stamford Hospital gained a portion of the Vidal Court property for the hospital’s new campus expansion including a new healthcare pavilion. We provided planning, civil engineering and land surveying services which translated to fluency in applications for Master Plan changes, Zone changes, Text changes, Site Plan approvals, and the discontinuance of City Streets. Construction logistics were critical to the design allowing the hospital to stay fully operational during the campus and facility improvements. The project is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council under the LEED® rating system and is incorporating strategies from the Green Guide for Health Care. The Charter Oak Communities revitalization of Vidal Court includes a replacement of the existing 216 units and an increase in the total number of units to 350 on multiple sites.
