New Mixed-Use Facility
IMEG is providing structural engineering design services for the multi-phased mixed-use complex in the NoMa district of Washington, D.C. The one million square foot facility is comprised of three residential towers, below-grade parking, and a structured urban plaza featuring a central fountain and extensive landscaping features.
Phase One, the Elevation at Washington Gateway, is a 14-story, 400-unit apartment building above three levels of below-grade parking. Rooftop amenities include a pool, sun deck, party room, and views of the Capitol. Additional amenities include a grand lobby, grand staircase, and mixed media art wall. The cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete structure was completed in 2014.
Developers are continuing the transformation of the Washington Gateway site in Phases Two and Tree, with the addition of two residential towers with below-grade parking. A bike lobby connecting the Metropolitan Branch Trail with Florida Avenue, NE will link the towers. Bike lobby amenities are anticipated to include bike racks, benches, a staircase with bike troughs down to the plaza, and a possible bike repair station. The Phase Two and Three residential structures will also be cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete.
