IMEG is providing structural engineering design services for Armature Works, a former industrial site converted into a 1+ million square-foot urban center in Washington, D.C. The mixed-use development will include two 12-story residential buildings and an 11-story boutique hotel above a five-level parking structure/retail podium.
The two residential buildings will house 650 apartments and the hotel will include 200 guest rooms, a ground-floor restaurant, rooftop bar, 10,000 square feet of meeting space, and an outdoor terrace with views of the U.S. Capitol. The development will also include a large public plaza and 50,000-sf of retail located at ground level with a future pedestrian tunnel planned to connect to the NoMa-Galludet University Metro Station. The five-level parking structure/retail podium will have two levels above-grade and three levels below-grade and will position the buildings above the Amtrak railway at the western edge of the Armature Works site.
The building structures will be cast-in-place concrete construction and the design and construction of all three towers and the parking structure will be concurrent with an estimated completion in 2020.
