TPA provided civil engineering and landscape architecture design services to support a 230-unit residential infill building located in downtown New Haven. The existing site consisted of the signature Crown Tower and Crown Court apartments built as successful examples of the city’s urban renewal efforts during the 1960s. Mature oak trees, a modernist sculpture, and a deteriorating parking deck structure presented challenges to development.
Site plan improvements include an open passive recreation lawn, new shade trees, LED lighting, and an exterior entertaining patio. Commercial storefronts along Crown Street will add new life to the streetscape. TPA also worked with Newman Architects to design a rooftop amenity space including pergolas, plantings, and exterior furnishings.
Construction began in fall of 2019 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
