Abstract: We all know the high price of land development these days, so it's more important than ever for owners and their designers to maximize available land area. Occasionally, this demand is constrained by topography and difficult or uncertain subsurface conditions. One such project involved a retail development in southern Connecticut that borders a residential community set along a ridgeline, where a stabilized steep cut was made in close proximity to a proposed store.
