Peconic Crossing Apartment Complex - Site Civil Permitting & Design

Conifer Realty LLC

LKMA was hired by Conifer Realty LLC in 2014 to provide a full Site Civil package associated with the development of a site plan for a 45-unit apartment building situated at 11 West Main Street in downtown Riverhead.  The transformative project required surveying services, bulkhead design/permitting, the development of grading & drainage plans, stormwater pollution prevention plan elements, obtaining highway work permits from both the NYSDOT (NY-25) and the SCDPW (CR-63), securing approvals by the Riverhead Water District and Riverhead Sewer District, Site Plan approval by the Town of Riverhead Planning Board, preparation of a landscape plan and relocation of a historic drainage outfall pipe.  

The Peconic Crossing project redeveloped a blighted existing commercial site located on Main Street, creating 45 affordable energy-efficient apartments with a preference to artists and lower-income residents.  The 0.51-acre site is located in downtown Riverhead, adjacent to the Peconic River. The project aims to attract residents seeking art-based entertainment in a friendly pedestrian setting.  Residents can walk or bike to work, restaurants, shops, and more.

  • Hydrodynamic separation unit was used removes sediment, oil and other pollution from the stormwater which previously discharged to the river.

  • NYSDOT easement runs through the ground floor parking area and limited the amount of space available for subsurface improvements such as utilities and drainage structures.
