This mixed-use project is located in Washington, DC at the northeast corner of 9th and N Streets, NW directly across from the Washington Convention Center. The project has a total of five floors, composing 30,387 sq. ft. and includes retail and an office/apartment lobby function on the first floor, commercial/office space at the second floor, and three levels of seventeen (17) apartments above.
One of the goals of the project was to restore a series of five adjacent, abandoned brick row houses dating from 1860 to 1930, so the existing facades and party walls were preserved and in-filled with new space, and new building area was added on the east, rear portion of the site. The 4th and 5th floor additions are stepped back from the street to respect the scale of the original buildings and create a roof terrace amenity for the apartments.
Located in the NOMA district of Washington, DC; the project includes the historic preservation, adaptive re-use, and an addition to the existing Uline Arena building and adjacent Ice House. Uline Arena is on the National Register of Historic Places and represents an early example of modern industrial design. The thin shell concrete vaulted roof is an early example of structural innovation in the United States.
Our primary design goal was to develop architectural solutions that would preserve the building’s structural integrity and respect the architectural detailing and vocabulary of this historic facade. The design includes approximately 290,000 square feet of commercial office space and two levels of below grade parking. The existing masonry façades will be restored, with a 2-story addition constructed above the Ice House. The addition is designed in steel and glass, to complement the industrial character of the existing building. Project amenities include a multi-level atrium space constructed within the Arena and a new landscaped entry plaza. This project will incorporate Sustainable Design strategies and seek LEED certification. The project is currently in the schematic design phase and has received approval by DC HPRB and BZA.
77 P Street NE is a six story, 380,000 square foot office building, which started as an abandoned warehouse building, previously know as “Peoples Drug Warehouse”. A portion of the existing structure was maintained, and expanded with 138,500 square feet of new construction. The building is located on New York Avenue and North Capitol Streets, having a clock tower, which becomes a gateway element at the corner of the site.
Union Place is a 750,000 square foot multi-phased mixed-use development project located in the NOMA district of Washington, DC. Phase I, the Loree Grand, is a 10-story, 212-unit apartment building, with 4,000 sq. ft. of retail space. Phase II will include 500 residential units with 15,000 sq. ft. of retail and daycare planned. A significant project amenity features a central landscaped courtyard open to both private residents and the public. The design goal was to develop a solution that would complement the existing urban fabric of the low rise row houses typically found in this part of the city. The final site solution allows for separate pedestrian and vehicular traffic routes to enhance the retail shopping presence along K Street. The project received final PUD approval for Phase II in the Fall of 2008. Phase I is now complete.
Union Mills is an 80,000 SF mixed-use project located in the Frederick, MD downtown district fronting the Carroll Creek Park Phase II revitalization. The design calls for renovation work within an existing warehouse for new restaurant and retail spaces, along with a two-story glass and metal addition above that will house future office space. The structure is being designed for LEED-Silver certification and is expected to be completed in 2010.
McHenrys is a 115,000 SF mixed-use project at the corner of East Street and the Carroll Creek Park Phase II revitalization within downtown Frederick, MD. This new 5-story masonry, glass and steel structure will include first floor restaurant and retail spaces, a lower level parking garage and 4 stories of office space above. The structure is being designed for LEED-Silver certification and is expected to be completed in 2010.
The redeveloped Channing Place buildings preserve the existing industrial aesthetic with new, modern detailing. This project is an effort to preserve the city’s industrial structures while offering an adaptive re-use office building solution incorporating eco-friendly design.
Located in Baltimore’s downtown, commercial district, the site encompasses three city blocks, long slated for urban revitalization. GTM provided feasibility and conceptual design services for this proposed transit-oriented development project. The site is bisected East and West by Route 40 and bond North and South by the light rail system along Howard Street. The conceptual design solution aims to address the problem of how best to preserve historic structure while providing additional density to meet modern day programmatic needs. Proposed uses include commercial, residential, retail, education and hotel uses.
The Wonder Bread Factory is located adjacent to the Shaw Metro station (yellow & green line) at the intersection of S Street, NW & 7th Street, NW in a commercial district with an Arts overlay (ARTS/C-2-B). The existing two-story and three-story masonry buildings, which total 73,600sf, will be renovated and restored. A glass and metal addition of approximately 52,400sf will be constructed on top of the existing buildings to bring the overall square footage of the building to 126,000sf at a height of five floors. The cellar will house service and storage areas. The first floor will contain approximately 8,000sf of retail space and a minimum of 28 parking spaces. The upper four floors will be office space accessible by two passenger elevators and one freight elevator. Office ceiling heights will vary between 8’-6” and 9’-6”. Construction is estimated to begin in the first quarter of 2009.
The site encompasses an entire city block located in the emerging “Capitol Riverfront” District in Southeast Washington, DC, blocks from the US Capitol and the new Nationals Ballpark Stadium. The block is bound by K & L Street to the North and South and 1st and Half Streets to the East and West. GTM provided overall feasibility, land use options and master planning design services for the project. Phase I of the project will include a 14 story – 200-condominium unit building at the corner of 1st and L Street. Expected delivery is Fall 2009. The proposed program includes residential, retail, office and hotel uses. The overall development represents approximately 750,000 square feet of urban development.
