AvalonBay Communities, Inc.
This redevelopment of an existing commercial site consists of a 5-story, wood-frame structure over podium parking that will accommodate approximately 190 apartments and 298 parking spaces. Access will occur off of two existing private ways within the Hingham Shipyard.
HSH has been tasked with providing civil engineering, transportation planning, and traffic engineering services. HSH also prepared the Project Eligibility Letter Application for the client. The project was fast-tracked and received approval of the Comprehensive Permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals within 3 months of filing. HSH has also prepared a detailed Transportation Impact and Access Study (TIAS) and a comprehensive off-site mitigation package that will require Town, MassDOT, and MBTA coordination to address operational and safety concerns in the study area.
