This project involved the new construction of a nine-story apartment building with three levels of below grade parking. The structure is a concrete frame with spread footings. Due to the nature of the tight urban site and shallow foundations of neigh- boring buildings underpinning of an adjacent church was required. Rock removal was also required. The building faade features brick and precast concrete veneer with punched win- dows. The luxury apartments feature floor to ceiling glass porcelain tiles hardwood flooring and highly efficient variable refrigerant flow HVAC systems which allow independent 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 also includes a common penthouse level consisting of ancillary indoor space and aLiveroofvegetated landscaped roof deck. Due to the buildings location in the busy O Street neighborhood of downtown Wash- ington DC significant coordination was required to ensure construction personnel pedestrian and traffic safety remained the top priority while maintaining the aggres- sive 16-month construction schedule.
