Wincoram Commons (Brookhaven Blight to Light) Apartment Complex

Conifer Realty LLC

LKMA was hired by Conifer Realty LLC in 2011 to prepare wetland mitigation plans, sanitary pump station & connection plans as well as all site civil aspects of the 184-unit apartment complex in Coram (Route 112 & Route 25).  The Town of Brookhaven granted site plan approval in 2013 and the NYSDEC  approved the wetland mitigation plans prepared by LKMA.   Site civil design elements include grading, drainage, interior road design, traffic impact study, NYSDOT road & signal design, utility layout/coordination, preparation of a storm-water pollution prevention plan, landscaping, site lighting, site access, parking and other site elements.  LKMA’s in-house surveying capabilities were used in the construction phase of this project.
