12 Innovative Post-Sandy Projects Built to Withstand Future Storms

A new townhouse community – Saltmeadow – in Far Rockaway, has been recognized as one of the 12 new innovative developments for flood-resilient design. The development is located within the flood zone affected by Hurricane, which urged the developer, JDS Development Group, and the architect, CetraRuddy Architecture, to ensure Saltmeadow would withstand storms in the future. Habitable spaces in the apartments as well as electrical closets are all built above the base flood elevation, and the buildings include flood vents that will prevent damage to foundation walls in the case of a flood. Permeable pavers and storm planters are a few additional features that contribute to the project’s flood resilience.

Believe it. This Project is in New York City

Saltmeadow is a new rental beachfront community of townhouses in Far Rockaway, Queens. Designed by CetraRuddy architects and developed by JDS Development Group, the new development includes 60 residences in four clusters of two-family townhouses. Bound by Beach 5th and Beach 6th Streets between Reynolds Channel and Seagirt Boulevard, the ground-floor façades of the townhouses are clad in a stone base of quartzite and sedimentary rock, echoing the jetties along the shoreline of Rockaway. Locally-quarried bluestone slabs are used in accent trims and the entry stairs. Accent walls of beveled Western red cedar planks and weathered zinc light fixtures provide additional warmth at the townhouse entries. Taking advantage of its waterfront location, all homes have outdoor space and windows oriented to maximize water views. Set within the flood zone affected by Superstorm Sandy in 2012, the project was designed to withstand flooding and allows residents to rebound from future extreme events. All habitable spaces and electrical closets are built above the base flood elevation, while ground floors are laid out as storage, garage and unfinished areas. In addition, the design features flood vents, permanent openings that allow water to pass into or out of a building’s exterior foundation walls. Other sustainable features include white roofs, permeable pavers to reduce runoff, and storm planters that capture roof runoff and filter it before releasing it back into the soil.
