Lincoln Commons- Senior Housing
425 Lincoln Avenue, Borough of Haddonfield, NJ
The Ingerman Group

ADLER was selected by The Ingerman Group to provide surveying, engineering, and landscape architecture services associated with the construction of a 43-unit, income restricted, independent living, senior housing complex in the historic Borough of Haddonfield.     The project consisted of the demolition of the former NJDOT building at the site, construction of the new building, parking, storm-water management system, extensive landscaping, retaining wall, lighting, and utilities.   Due to the extreme sensitivity of this controversial project located in a residential neighborhood, ADLER worked closely with the client, the Borough Planning Board and subcommittee, and the Borough Engineer to incorporate Borough and resident concerns and create an overall appealing/successful project.

For the planning and site development activities on this project, ADLER provided the following services:

·          ALTA/ACSM survey with topography, utilities, landscaping, “drip-lines” of existing trees, and locations of offsite buildings, utilities, and roadway sections.

·          Full civil site engineering design and plans.

·          Design of parking lot layout, ingress/egress routes, circulation, and pedestrian access. (Special design consideration was given to layout and grading due to the use and occupants of the facility).

·          Design of site grading, drainage (subsurface detention with recharge system), utility, retaining wall, pavement, parking and pedestrian lighting, and soil erosion measures.

·          Landscape architecture design for new aesthetic plantings, buffers, and screens, while focusing on preserving and complimenting existing mature vegetation.   Design also included notes and specifications for pruning, trimming, thinning and select removal of existing vegetation. 

·          Coordination with Borough for site and drainage improvements.

·          Acquisition of County and Borough permits and approvals.

·          Expert testimony at numerous Borough Planning Board and Site Plan Subcommittee meetings.

·          Construction stakeout

·          Construction administrative services, shop drawing review, field inspections.


Streetscape and Corridor Revitalization, Runnemede, NJ

ADLER has been appointed by the Borough of Runnemede, Camden County, New Jersey, for the preparation of a Revitalization Plan for the Route 168 corridor (approximately 1.1 miles) and the Clements Bridge Road streetscape.   The goal of the Revitalization Plan was to develop an attractive streetscape improvement program, develop a program for establishing public parking facilities, improve pedestrian movement along the respective streets and to local businesses, establish a program to market and encourage new business ventures and growth, develop improvement standards, and facilitate voluntary contributions from local merchants and residents.   The development of this plan consisted of an evaluation of existing land use, on and off-street parking, pedestrian routes, and traffic characteristics; an analysis of the existing ordinances and master plan; an analysis of overall functional/efficiency relationship; and interactive meetings with Borough and County Officials, merchants, residents, local organizations, the NJDOT.    The plan summarized the findings of our evaluation and analysis, provided recommendations as to methods and measures to implement for revitalizing the corridors, and served as a basis for seeking funding.    To compliment and further support the recommendations of the Revitalization Plan, ADLER assisted the Borough with establishing an active Beautification Committee, enacting improvement standards and modifications to the ordinances, enacting the position of Director of Economic Development, and identifying and seeking additional grants/funding opportunities.
