Roseland Port Imperial Development

Roseland Port Imperial
Project Overview: 
McLaren worked with the Roseland Property Company since the mid-1990s on the development of Port Imperial, a $1.7 billion master planned waterfront community, along two miles of the Hudson River, in West New York and Weehawken, New Jersey. Port Imperial consists of 6,500 residential units and approximately 2 million square feet of commercial space, including office, retail, entertainment, and a full service hotel.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided shoreline stabilization design, geotechnical design, soil surcharge design, and soil monitoring programs, and provided the structural design and construction oversight of a number of the buildings in Port Imperial. McLaren has incorporated industrialized construction techniques in the structural design by designing light-gage steel load bearing wall buildings where the walls were fabricated off-site in a controlled environment, saving construction time and overall building costs. Design challenges included creating a new residential and commercial development on a former rail yard; the dilapidated condition of existing waterfront structures; the lack of infrastructure; and contaminated soils.
