Site Development
Our vertically integrated approach allows us to handle every aspect of complicated site development projects, eliminating the need for multiple contractors.

Edward Cardinal Egan Pavilion, Bronx, NY

Located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, the Egan Pavilion is a new three story structure which will house retired priests and accommodate necessary staff. It is an addition to the existing John Cardinal O’Connor Clergy Residence owned by the Archdiocese of New York. Our site work included the installation of all underground utilities for the new structure, as well as replacing existing underground facilities. Over 1,000 feet of eight inch sanitary line was installed at depths over ten feet, servicing Egan, as well as replacing the existing O’Connor service. New water pipe, domestic and fire, was installed, including an insertion valve for the entire facility. An outdoor “RPZ” and “Hot Box” were installed along with new electric, gas and telecommunication facilities. Several hundred cubic yards of Granite was hammered and removed to accommodate the facilities installation. The entire sites drainage system was replaced, including a 70,000 gallon underground detention system. Retaining walls were constructed utilizing stone excavated from the site and all existing blacktop was replaced, full depth and overlay as called out.

Cross County Shopping Center, Yonkers, NY

This forty plus million dollar site development project is part of a major refit/expansion of one of the first outdoor malls of its kind in the United States. This project entails infrastructure replacement including installation of new gas, electric, water, sewer and drainage pipe up to 60" in diameter at depths to 20' below grade. Four pump stations were installed as well as three water quality structures over 25 feet below grade. Excavation for a precast parking structure, installation of a detention basin, major rock cuts to new and existing mall entrances within the mall property and on the Cross County Parkway, excavate for and erect retaining walls, along with extensive resurfacing of roadways and parking areas within the mall grounds. Excavate for and mobilize utilities for buildings housing a Hyatt Hotel, Red Lobster and Longhorn Steakhouse/Olive Garden co-share.

Public School 6, Yonkers, NY

This $63 million housing development converted the former “PS 6”site, into a 172,000 square foot mixed income housing complex for Yonkers families and seniors. The project required the rehabilitation of Ashburton Avenue to accommodate the new structures as well as installation of new gas, electric, water, sewer and telecommunication infrastructure. The project fell under the “New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program” with over 60 thousand tons of contaminated material removed and replaced with suitable materials. Also, prior to offloading, ground water had to be treated utilizing a “Frac” tank and carbon filtration system.

Naval Operations Support Center New York City, Bronx NY

Located on Throgs Neck, this active naval installation required several sections of its parking lots excavated to rectify compaction issues causing the lots to settle. Existing pavements, storm structures as well as unsuitable soils to depths of 13 feet were excavated. Two sections excavated were sensitive due to buried structures requiring an archeologist on site to take profiles and obtain samples. Along with replacing unsuitable soil with structural fill, all disturbed pavement was restored. New drainage lines and structures, trench drains, sidewalks, foundation drains, and a foundation waterproofing system were installed. Existing fire hydrants and water mains were removed and replaced with new water mains of varying diameters providing fire suppression and domestic water throughout the site. In keeping with the project’s environmental goals, Montesano’s material screener and crusher were mobilized on site, reducing construction waste through reuse and recycling of existing materials to meet the projects specifications.

The Shops at Nanuet, Rockland County, NY

The Nanuet Mall, which opened in 1969, is situated on 63 acres and was comprised of 120 stores totaling 560,000 square feet of retail space. The owner, Simon Property Group, converted this property into an “open air lifestyle center” called The Shops at Nanuet. To construct “The Shops”, the existing main portion of the mall as well as the parking deck were demolished. They were replaced by new retail shops, a fitness center, 12 screen movie theater, grocery store, two detached retail structures and a stand-alone restaurant. Montesano reconstructed all of the access drives, mall roadways and on-grade parking lots; erected a bus shelter; excavated for and installed all new utilities to the building pads and constructed three modular block walls. The largest wall, 12 feet high by 520 feet long required the implementation of a coffer dam system due to the wall’s footing and first few courses being below standing water. In order to control storm water run-off Montesano installed a pre-cast concrete modular system (storm trap) which stores flood water underground. This system has a storage capacity of 1.2 million gallons. To reduce the project’s environmental impact and in keeping with our environmental goals, demolition debris and milled asphalt were crushed and screened on site and reused as compacted fill and pavement sub-base respectively.

South County Trailway, County of Westchester,
City of Yonkers, NY

This project was for the County of Westchester. An asphalt bicycle path approximately four miles in length was installed at the former Putnam Railroad right of way. This section of the bicycle path spans from the Bronx, NY County line to Barney Street in The City of Yonkers, NY. This project also included rehabilitating three existing railroad bridges, erecting new retaining walls, installing new drainage, grading and blacktoping the final product.
