The Commons at Prospect Hill

This project is a 1.7 million square feet mixed use redevelopment of eleven buildings including Class A office, retail and restaurant uses on the 120-acre site of the former Polaroid chemical, manufacturing, and office headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts.  One of Crowe’s roles on this project has been assisting the Owner and other members of the consultant team with the integration of workable sustainable site initiatives into the design of the redevelopment.  LEED Core and Shell certification will be sought for all buildings, and LEED silver Certification will be sought for the office components of the project. 
Low Impact Development (LID) strategies used in the site design include multi-level retail buildings to reduce footprint impacts; multi-level parking structures to reduce pavement cover; and site configurations that facilitate shared parking. The landscape design maximizes water efficiency.  Plants used will be a hardy stock of predominantly native or species adapted for minimal irrigation.  Lawn areas are minimized.  Irrigation controls will be state-of-the-art systems with automatic adjustments to avoid unnecessary watering.  Stormwater management plans for on-site and off-site improvements include infiltration of roof run-off; bio-retention cells; gravel wetlands; and wet basins.
