• FedEx—555 Riverwalk Warehouse & Office Facility


TM Montante Development sought Kideney Architects to assist with site planning within the Riverview Solar Technology Park. Initial development focused on a new distribution center for FedEx Trade Networks. For this 88,000 SF commercial solar complex with a need for several hundred parking spaces, Kideney worked to ensure the first stage of development on the site did not inhibit future development. The building, sandwiched between ephemeral wetlands and a steep slope adjacent to a creek, required close attention to how the site was graded to avoid impacting existing natural resources while optimizing orientation to maximize solar exposure. Kideney, in conjunction with consulting engineers, developed site documents to comply with local zoning and NYSDEC standards for stormwater mitigation.
