Mount Pleasant Corporate Center
Skibinski Associates was commissioned by SLIBCO, the industrial development arm of the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, to prepare a comprehensive masterplan and develop roadway, utility infrastructure and future building pad design for the proposed Mount Pleasant Corporate Center. The 23.5± acre site, immediately adjacent to Scranton’s central business district, is designated a Keystone Opportunity Zone (KOZ).
Professional services include: topographic and boundary surveys, building demolition package, engineering design (roadway and infrastructure), preliminary and final subdivision plans, right-of-way plans, utility relocation, wetland delineation and report of findings, wetland mitigation, traffic impact study, a Phase II testing program for an abandoned underground oil storage tank, geotechnical engineering program, and asbestos abatement evaluation of an on-site building.
The project includes the design of approximately 1,400 L.F. of internal road, a PennDOT HOP for the site access intersection/traffic signalization with West Linden Street (SR 3020) and
widening of West Linden Street, utility infrastructure consisting of a gravity sanitary sewer system, domestic and fire protection water distribution systems, electrical and telecommunications infrastructure, gas distribution, stormwater management, NPDES and E&S permitting, a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit (HOP) for off-site roadway widening to provide a separate left turn lane to the North Scranton Expressway, an additional left-turn lane at the Expressway’s Seventh Avenue exit ramp, stormwater modifications, traffic signal modifications, and ramp pre-emption, land development, approval acquisition, contract document preparation, cost analysis, bidding assistance and construction administration services.
