Chimney Rock Crossing Bridgewater Township, N.J. Above: Chimney Rock Crossing is a 218,274-square-foot retail complex straddling two tracts totaling over 36 acres on the east and west sides of Chimney Rock Road at the Route 22 interchange in Bridgewater Township. From the conceptual design phase through site grading, plantings, and detailing for pedestrian gathering spaces, MEA's Landscape Architects were involved in all aspects of this redevelopment of a former industrial property. The landscape architects also wrote the Environmental Impact Statement, outlining compliance with myriad regulations, from flood hazard area and riparian buffers to stormwater management and soil erosion control, on a property with significant grade change. Owned by Regency Centers and anchored by a 50,000-square foot Whole Foods Market, the shopping center has already seen the openings of several other stores, including Nordstrom Rack, Saks OFF 5th, Cost Plus World Market, Blaze Pizza, and The Habit Burger Grill.

Below: The Lincoln Harbor Waterfront – Southpark in the Borough of Weehawken involved a landscape architectural design that included utilizing shoreline stabilization and waterfront plantings to create a public walkway and gathering space, about an acre long, along the Hudson River. The goal to take advantage of spectacular skyline views and create a linear park for local residents was achieved.
