Chestnut Square at 220 Chestnut Street

West Chester Borough, Chester County, PA

Commonwealth Engineers, Inc. was the land development engineer for Chestnut Square, located at 220 Chestnut Street in the heart of West Chester, Pennsylvania.  This development was a five-story mixed-use apartment building with 206 luxury apartments, street level commercial space, a rooftop green space and pool, and an interior parking garage.  Commonwealth Engineers worked closely with the client, local authorities, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to successfully secure all required Local and State Permitting for this landmark building. Providing redevelopment opportunities in the Borough required some innovations, such as green roof areas that were connected to roof drains and amended soils in the green roof areas, which satisfied all NPDES requirements.
