A view from the neighborhood

Toll Brothers established a City Living brand for their residential developments in dense urban areas.  While with a previous firm, Mr. Schaffer provided site civil services for a project in the Vinegar Hill area of Brooklyn, NY.  Set in an industrial-residential fringe area, the site offered iconic surroundings and quick access to public transport.  Tasks included site design, grading, utility design, and permitting with MTA and NYCDEP.

The proposed condominium buildings featured a two level parking deck, private roof decks and balcony access. Set on a mid-block through lot, the site required a garage access on both street fronts and was constrained by existing buildings on both lot lines.
