The Overture at Brookfield Commons

Brookfield Commons is a public/private partnership to redevelop the Winbrook public housing complex in White Plains into a mixed-income residential community. AKRF led civil and geotechnical engineering, site assessment/remediation services, and SEQRA environmental planning for a nine-story, 129-apartment residential tower during the second phase of the project. Our work included full site planning and permitting, including the preparation of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan and sanitary flow monitoring for sewers in close proximity to the site. Our subsurface exploration consisted of ten geotechnical borings and the installation of two groundwater observation wells, and our report addressed the site’s historical land use, review of historic drawings, a liquefaction evaluation, and recommendations for a drilled deep foundation system bearing in soil or rock. The White Plains Common Council unanimously adopted the Site Plan Approval in 2018, and the groundbreaking was celebrated in 2019.
