Mixed-Use Redevelopments.

208,056-Square-Foot Redevelopment

This mixed-use redevelopment project in Hartford, CT, encompasses one-half of a city block and includes a parking structure, townhouses, high-rise apartments and street-level retail and dining spaces. Years of abandonment and water damage had destroyed the interior finishes but the basic structure and exterior ornamental finishes were able to be restored.

A 300-car below grade garage was built with a precast filigree system under the former department store. The parking structure supports the concrete deck for the townhouses built at the site, which are served by rooftop packaged HVAC units while apartments have a valance system combined with an outdoor makeup unit and a heat recovery wheel.


49,890-Square-Foot Redevelopment

This five-story project in Washington, DC, contains 12 assisted living units, 20 apartments and common spaces around a landscaped courtyard. Retail space is incorporated at street level. Floor sizes range from 9,885 square feet to 10,230 square feet. The building has one elevator.

The assisted living units are located on the first and second floors. They have views to the courtyard and private patios. The units have small kitchens but residents can also take meals in a full kitchen and common area on the second floor. Floors three through five consist of apartments ranging in size from studios to three-bedroom units. The apartments have floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the courtyard and city.
