Taj Estates - Stoughton, MA
Taj Estates, formerly known as Woodbridge Crossing, is a 179-unit apartment project comprised of five buildings spread out over twenty-four acres of land in Stoughton, MA. The project was designed and permitted under the Massachusetts Comprehensive Permit Act: Chapter 40B. A&M successfully navigated the permitting process, which included Zoning Board of Appeals approval under the Comprehensive Permit Act and Conservation Commission approval for work within the 100-foot buffer zone of a wetland, floodplain alteration, and wetland filling and replication. The project included extensive off-site improvements to Central Street, including lane widening, re-alignment of an intersection, and the installation of a traffic signal at the front entrance to the site. The site layout and grading were optimized to reduce earthwork and the overall disturbance to the site. Stormwater was managed using a combination of subsurface and surface systems to minimize cost and maintenance requirements. The end result is a thriving community in place of the previous vacant deteriorating industrial use.
