This project involved the new construction of a seven-story mixed-use building complete with luxury apartments street level retail space and a below grade parking garage. The structure is a hybrid concrete frame and light gauge frame with spread footings bearing on rammed aggregate piers. Due to the nature of the tight urban site and shallow foundations of neighboring buildings underpinning of adjacent structures was required. The building faade features brick veneer with punched windows along with full height vertical bays with glass and metal cladding. The design combined features reminiscent of a historic brick warehouse with the look of a modern glass structure which compliments the surrounding architecture of the U Street Historic District. The luxury apartments feature floor to ceiling glass porcelain tile and hardwood floor- ing and highly efficient variable refrigerant flow HVAC systems which allows indepen- dent control and simultaneous heating and cooling in different units. All units have gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances granite countertops and custom cabinetry. The building includes a common penthouse level consisting of ancillary indoor space and a landscaped roof deck with views of Washington DC monuments. Due to the buildings location in the busy U Street neighborhood of downtown Wash- ington DC significant coordination was required to ensure construction personnel pedestrian and traffic safety remained a top priority while maintaining the aggressive 15-month construction schedule.
