Pennoni Projects Recognized for Distinguished Engineering by...

PHILADELPHIA – Pennoni, a multidiscipline engineering, science, and design consulting firm, received two Distinguished Engineering Awards from the New Jersey Alliance for Action. The group’s annual award recognizes innovative and outstanding engineering companies and their unique projects that positively impact New Jersey’s economy and environment. The two projects submitted – Provost Square Powerhouse District Redevelopment and the Lenape Trail Restoration – both promote New Jersey and its growing population.

Provost Square, a multi-phase residential project by Toll Brothers – City Living in Hoboken, will sit in the Powerhouse District of Jersey City: home to historic, but abandoned, warehouses. Within close proximity to Manhattan and clear views of the Hudson, Toll Brothers saw an opportunity to create a luxurious residential complex, with shopping and entertainment venues. In the first phase of the project, a 38- story apartment building, Pennoni’s work gave a clear look of what a completed Provost Square would look like in providing comprehensive site designs for the project. 

The Lenape Trail Restoration project is one part of a complete park revival project headed by the Branch Brook Park Alliance and the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. Asphalt previously placed on the two-mile trail would shift when wet and the trail would become muddy. As one of few walking trails in historic Branch Brook Park, the organizations made its restoration a priority in order to encourage and support healthy activity for all ages and physical conditions. Pennoni worked with landscape architecture firm, Rhodeside and Harwell, to improve the path while keeping true to the original design by park planner Frederick L. Olmstead in the 1890s. 

The New Jersey Alliance for Action is a non-profit, statewide coalition that focuses on economic growth and capital construction opportunities within the region. This will be the third Distinguished Award Ceremony that the group has held, and it will take place April 30 at the Edison Hotel and Convention Center.
