A relocation site for The Metropolitan Plant Exchange in Fort Lee, New Jersey provided the larger-sized area needed to operate its retail nursery, florist and greenhouse services. However, the land needed to be leveled before the facility could be built. The proposed site solution of building a structural retaining wall, first thought to be routine, was complicated by area rock outcroppings, the discovery of subsurface bedrock and local construction codes. The final solution was to excavate some of the area’s bedrock and build a Keystone Compac™ Victorian wall on and in vertical coordination of the remaining bedrock. The Keystone Compac Victorian was selected because it met the site’s challenging demand for a design-flexible, structurally sound wall system that was both long-term and aesthetically-pleasing.
