Transformation of 45-acre former warehouse and office building site into a blend of retail and green space
The transformation by Brinkmann Constructors of the 45-acre site at Woods Mill and Clayton roads into the 310,000 SF Town & Country Crossing utilized recycled materials and created a three-acre lake amid a tapestry of landscaping.
The 18-month project required Brinkmann to sculpt the tract by first leveling the 670,000 square-foot Lucent warehouse and office building and retaining more than 5,000 truckloads of asphalt and concrete. The materials were later used to create retail floor slabs and the rock base for the parking lot. Ultimately, Brinkmann recycled more than 90 percent of the Lucent structures, resulting in vast savings for the client and the city of Town & Country. The site now equally blends free standing retail buildings with green space populated by more than 1,200 trees and 5,000 plants.
