Fox Run Off Campus Residences Poughkeepsie, New York

pp-fox-run-3In 2011 LRC began preparing civil design plans for a residential development located on Fulton Street in the Town of Poughkeepsie. The LRC Group provided concept planning, permitting, engineering design and land surveying for this major market rate housing complex in pursuit of approvals for this significant project.

Since the projects approval we have worked with the construction team providing construction administration and site survey for the development now known as Fox Run at Fulton.

pp-fox-run-2LRC has been performing site inspections relevant to stormwater and landscaping over the past year while coordinating with the Town of Poughkeepsie, the site contractor and the client.

On August 1st, 2016 the highly anticipated project opened its doors to occupants in the first of its two residential buildings at the site.


The New Bristol Boys and Girls Club Bristol, CT

pp-bristol-boys-and-girls-club-2LRC served as site design and engineering consultant on the design team for theBoys & Girls Club of Bristol Family Center in downtown Bristol, CT. The new club formally opened in the fall of 2014. On any given day, the club and its field house is buzzing with activities and the energy that comes from so many enthusiastic members.

West street is both a busy, prominent state road and city street and the new building and site is highly visible and readily accessible. The site serves the immediately neighboring residential areas, but is located on several bus routes making it accessible throughout the city.



Vassar College – Science Building Poughkeepsie, NY

PP VC Science Building-1

The LRC Group was retained to participate in the design and construction of the new state-of-the-art Science Center for Vassar College. The requirements of the expansion necessitated the construction of a new building and a revised campus landscape with pedestrian pathways that will redefine the functionality of the science departments on campus.

The design is an outgrowth of meetings with Campus Departments and the design team to integrate a state of the art science building into the existing campus landscape. The project involved renovation of two existing buildings, demolition of one building and the addition of the new Science Building spanning the creek on campus. Along with the new building a complete redesigned landscape and pedestrian access ways. The campus utilities were upgraded as part of the project as well as designing a integrated stormwater management plan with the landscape.

Neptune Commerce Center Poughkeepsie, NY

PP - Neptune Commerce Center-2LRC is provided land planning, civil engineering and landscape architectural services for the redevelopment of a highly visible 9 acre industrial property located on Route 9, a busy and active travel corridor. Although several buildings and virtually all of the existing site improvements were demolished, the entire site has been redesigned around the renovation of 2 existing buildings into office, flex-office and multi -use space totaling over 85,000 s.f. The plan also includes the addition of new buildings for restaurant and retail spaces oriented toward Route 9.

Extensive effort was required to develop access points into the site and circulation patterns that would serve the uses effectively. The plan has also been conceptualized in a manner that allowed it to be implemented in a phased yet flexible manner.

The project is approved with three existing tenants including Dunkin Donuts, Bounce! and Crunch Fitness.

“Crosswinds at Hudson” Housing Community Hudson, NY

LRC was retained with a team of professionals to design a multi-family attached condominium community targeted for middle-class to lower- income families who desired to live and work within the limits of the City of Hudson, New York. This project, once properly designed and approved, would receive state-operational funding for the community.

This project required a very extensive design process including analysis and modeling of the City’s current wastewater collection system, water supply, and stormwater collection system to ensure that the new development could be supported within the current utility infrastructure.

Ultimately, the project was approved, built and opened in 2008, with the Governor of New York performing the ribbon cutting.


Day Hill Road and Huckleberry Road Windsor, CT

LRC had the great pleasure of creating the master plan below. This subject parcel is over six hundred (600) acres in Windsor, Connecticut, and is currently owned by ABB who was actively soliciting bids to joint venture the property with a developer. LRC was asked to create a multi-use layout consisting of an industrial component, two separate office components and a multi-family residential component—all while maintaining a significant portion of the existing facility already on site.

The industrial tenant anticipated for this site is an international bottler, I.e. Pepsi Co., requiring an extremely large bottling facility.

The office space design for the site consists of one 450,000 s.f. to 500,000 s.f. single user and another series of free standing three story buildings of 150,000 s.f. that could be phased in construction.

The residential component for the site envisioned an attached condominium development of almost 2,000 units.

This master plan generated by LRC greatly assisted the client’s selection as the joint venture development partner by ABB.

Liberty Business Park Bloomfield, CT

This development consisted of two – ten (10) acre parcels that were subdivided from an eighty (80) acre parcel. Formerly farmland, the parcel was rezoned industrial.

LRC was contracted to do the survey and subdivision plan as well as engineer and permit the two – one-hundred thousand (100,000) square foot buildings. The site challenges included: lack of topography, meaning the site was too flat; flood storage problems; and on-site soil management.

Presently, the developer has built and tenanted one of the two buildings. Construction on Phase 2 is currently underway.



Panera Bread Wethersfield, CT

The site for this proposed Panera Bread was within an existing 20 acre, 144,000 square foot shopping center. The restaurant is sited in at the south end and within the main front parking lot and takes advantage of very high visibility and traffic offered by adjacent CT Route 99, the Silas Dean Highway.

This restaurant is based on the Panera Bread model that includes a drive through service window. This complicated the design of site circulation, but LRC was able to satisfy the tenants preferred building siting and traffic patterns by re-aligning an existing entrance drive and modifying the drive adjacent to the face of the existing retail building. The project completed land use approvals in the spring 2011, with construction starting immediately and opened in the fall of 2011.

Hess Station – Hyde Park, NY


LRC worked with the Hess Corporation to redevelop an existing station into a new updated Hess Express Station.  LRC worked with Hess and the Town of Hyde Park to locate and place the proposed buildings to avoid impacting the adjacent stream.  As an additional design precaution two Rain Gardens were added to the final storm water runoff to provide a last level of storm water treatment.  The revised site plan required additional parking spaces and a new Hess Express building to fit on a small site constrained by wetlands and NYSDEC classified Streams.  The project had been completed and the site opened in December of 2011.
