K&A is proud to announce that its Wincoram Commons project in Coram, New York has been awarded a 2014 Smart Growth Award in the Housing Choices category.
K&A provided master planning and architectural services for the redevelopment of this 16-acre site, originally occupied by a suburban movie theater. The site was redeveloped by Conifer Realty LLC into a multi-use community with a mix of residential, retail and community facilities organized around the concepts of walkability, improved vehicular and pedestrian connectivity, attractive community spaces and a unique architectural and streetscape character. The development will be implemented over two phases ultimately offering this Long Island town 180 new residential units and 10,000 square feet of retail and commercial spaces.
This was a major effort on the part of the K&A staff charged with leading the project—most notably Claudia Bitran, AICP, PP who led the planning for the project; the architectural team comprised of Mary M. Johannesen, AIA, LEED® AP, Christopher J. Panella and Anthony Noga, RA, LEED® AP; as well as our in-house Engineering and Interior Design departments.
The Smart Growth Awards ceremony will be held on Friday, June 13th, 2014 at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, New York.
