D’Angelo Engineering & Development, LLC is currently engaged as an owner’s engineering and development consultant, working with professional, technical and legal teams to plan, permit, design and construct the following projects.
Unlocking the potential of the former Polaroid site in Waltham, MA involved the granting of a Phase I waiver through the MEPA process. The phase I waiver was granted to allow for 280,000 sf of redevelopment, but also allowed us time to design master plan infrastructure improvements which would not only serve the remaining 1,000,000 sf of planned mixed-use development, but also provide improvements for this central section of Route I-95 to better serve existing demand and provide for other development potential in the corridor.
The infrastructure master plan which has been developed includes a multi-modal transportation center, a multipurpose path connection to the Wayside Rail Trail, inter-connection of current development and creation of frontage roads to reduce conflicts on the mainline and address operational issues on I-95. This plan was developed over a two year period with input from over two dozen stakeholder groups and coordination with adjacent communities. Team members include TEC, CDM-Smith, RJ O’Connell and J & Company.
Planning and approval for a “Planned Unit Development” to convert 600+ acres of apple orchard to 1M sf of mixed-use development – to create living, working, recreational and governmental support services consistent with a vision prepared in partnership with the town of Londonderry, NH. The key to success was leading a team of transportation, site, civil & planning professionals to obtain approvals over a one year period. As of July, 2015, the project is in the design phase with utilities and support services being implemented. Team members include TEC, Shook-Kelley, DZP, TF Moran and Callahan-Gatrell.
Site of the former Gearworks portion of the General Electric plant, this 60 acre parcel was constructed in the 1940’s as a 460,000 sf plant in multiple buildings to produce high-quality, quiet-running engines for submarines and warships. In 2014, GE demolished the buildings and transferred ownership of the parcel to Lynnway Associates who has envisioned a 1,250 unit housing development on the site as part of Lynn’s waterfront redevelopment plan prepared by Saski Associates. The key to this redevelopment is the reuse of the current, secure “GE Employee Only” Riverworks transit stop into a “public” stop. The project will require MEPA review and additional acquisition for access and utility corridors. Project team members include GZA, TEC, Hancock Associates and Elkus Manfredi.
Reuse of the former General Electric “factory of the future” as a supermarket-anchored 180,000sf retail development involved the redefinition of street access plan and imaginative site development to respect the Activity and Use Limitation (AUL). Team members include Retail Management & Development, J & Company, Hancock Engineering and VHB.
