A “Modern Day Rockefeller Center” for The Federal City
One of the largest urban development projects in Washington D.C.’s history, the 10-acre CityCenter DC redevelopment consists of seven new buildings and a public park covering more than five city blocks. The development also served as a pilot for LEED for Neighborhood Development, the first program in the United States dedicated to sustainable neighborhood design and, as a result, was one of the first developments to receive LEED-ND Gold certification. The project was completed in 2013.
- The two commercial buildings provide 520,000 square feet of office space and 185,000 square feet of retail and dining space.
- The buildings consist of post-tensioned concrete with shear-wall lateral systems.
- Both buildings also include green roofs.
- A four-level underground parking garage were designed as four separate structures connected by expansion joints.
- The conventionally reinforced concrete structure serves as the foundation for the entire redevelopment area.
