The redevelopment of this amalgamation of former Superfund and brownfield industrial sites along the shores of Hempstead Harbor in Glen Cove, New York involved a multitude of construction work scopes. It included the construction of 3,461 ft of new bulkhead, excavation for site development and construction of two marinas, marine dredging, installation of a new drainage system, sanitary sewer system, electric infrastructure, bike paths, parks and the site preparation for the erection of 3 new condominium rental multi-level buildings, including roadways and parking.


The complexity of this project was tied mostly to the sheer magnitude of the site and the unforeseen hurdles such as the elevated water level below grade. This project required specialized expertise, experience, and a high level of planning and coordination. One of the most challenging complexities was the coordination with State, Local and Federal Authorities. Performing construction while balancing interwoven regulations set by multiple agencies for the dredging, marina construction, environmental remediation, site work and infrastructure improvements set this project apart from the norm.


Posillico took a very proactive approach to the challenges. Posillico ran weekly meetings with the client and the consultants, coordinating directly with the Federal, State and Local Regulatory Agencies. We used our experience in filing permits to expedite the approvals and modifications necessary to push the project forward. Posillico’s team also assisted with the redesign of certain aspects of the bulkhead and drainage system to better suit field conditions. We maintained communication and shared our expertise with the client to limit delays and go over our scope to optimize the schedule and the cost implications for the client.
