Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) March 17, 2013
HITT Contracting Inc. will host a party to celebrate the topping out of a new $45 million apartment building developed by Quadrangle Development Corporation and The Wilkes Company. The trophy-class project is located in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood of Washington, DC and is scheduled to wrap up in December of this year.
The new development will include a 14-story, 233,000 s.f. apartment building with 234 units, and a 39,000 s.f. parking garage. Occupants will have their choice of one-bedroom units and two-bedroom units. Amenities within the building will include a rooftop entertainment suite / club room, a custom rooftop pool with cascading waterfall feature, fire pit, a fitness center, a serene second floor landscaped terrace, and 9,300 s.f. of street level retail.
The apartment building is a post-tensioned concrete structure with a mat slab foundation. The rain screen facade features an open-joint Marrazzi porcelain tile with metal panels. Juliet balconies add to the building’s aesthetic and appeal as well as operable windows. Site work logistics challenges included a tight site adjacent to occupied building structures on two sides and site work along the busy K Street corridor.
The project team includes HITT Contracting Inc. as the General Contractor; Davis Carter Scott, Ltd. as project architect; DesignBuild Mechanical Corporation and Power Design, Inc., MEP design; Fernandez-Associates Structural Engineers P.C., Structural; and developers Quadrangle Development Corporation and The Wilkes Company.
