Project outcome

The 23-story, mixed use urban infill-development project provides 11,200 square feet of ground floor retail, plus 213 residential units on a six-story podium. Parking is provided in four above-grade parking levels for 238 cars. The highly irregular, 1.03-acre corner site is bound by retail on two sides and a heavily trafficked thoroughfare on the third.

The building's structural system includes post-tensioned, poured-in-place concrete slabs with concrete core walls and a high performance glazing/exterior envelope.

The SoFa neighborhood has a number of nightclubs and retail outlets. Working with so many operational building adjacencies required delicate planning provisions to allow neighboring properties to maintain service and egress access routes across the building site. The project team developed a dynamic site logistics plan and continually updated the project's website as construction progressed.

The basement parking excavation was immediately adjacent to several old, non-reinforced masonry buildings, requiring special protective measures and a complex pile driving approach.
