SESI Consulting Engineers Parking lot to residential community: Rejuvenating Metuchen’s Town Center R for years to come. Before After

eal estate success arises when a community’s needs and wants are fulfilled. Metuchen provided just the opportunity for a dis- cerning developer to create success. The town caters to a major commuter community, but was lacking downtown residential options and did not have adequate open spaces for the public to enjoy. Woodmont Properties has developed a beautiful solution: Pearl Street Plaza. By redeveloping an ex- isting ground-level parking lot, the group was able to build a transit-oriented town center adjacent to the train station. This new location offers 273 one- and two- bedroom luxury units, 12,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, a half-acre of public plaza – to be used for famer’s markets, con- certs, etc—and a 750 parking space multi-level parking deck to be shared by the residents and commuters. Prior to Woodmont’s involve- ment, the property was under- utilized as a commuter park- ing lot. Woodmont’s proposed mixed-use development added value for all involved stake- holders. This enhancement required well-thought planning and engineering to create a benefit for the municipality and its residents. SESI’s engineer- ing design involved building and parking lot layout, grad- ing, drainage, and construction support services. The site has been designed to accommodate ADA access to all public spaces. Woodmont Properties looked beyond the site’s existing sur- face parking lot and recognized that the location was ideal for a multifaceted development. While it was a great location, the property was not immedi- ately suited for construction and SESI was brought on to help make the development a reality. SESI’s scope of work included environmental due diligence, geotechnical inves- tigation, and civil engineering design. SESI’s LSRP carried out Phase I and Phase II of the Environmental Site Assess- ment. SESI executed the site and foundation development, obtainedmunicipal, county and NJDOT permits, and oversaw construction. SESI is proud to have been part of this group of forward thinking professionals that redeveloped this property into a destination that will be uti- lized by the whole community
