McLaren Engineering Group provided full engineering design services for three 23-story high-rise towers located at 416 and 420 Kent Avenue in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY. The modern towers are comprised of 857 apartment units, commercial space, underground parking and amenity spaces. Swimming pools and basketball courts can be found on top of the roof podiums. The total constructed floor area is 800,000 square feet.
McLaren’s team proved its versatility by servicing the structural, geotechnical, marine and civil portions of the high-rise Kent Avenue project. Tax abatement deadlines created a need for a fast-track design schedule requiring a permit set of structural drawings to be submitted within a one-month timeline. Partial borings were expedited to facilitate a preliminary pile design required to submit a structural permit set. Various McLaren divisions worked together seamlessly to meet project deadlines.
