The 10-story, 270,000 square-foot building is accented by a complex atrium that will connect the new building with the existing structures. Rising nine stories, the glass-capped atrium features pedestrian glass walkways connecting the buildings on various floors and is braced by a stunning steel structure supported by platforms and bridges. 300 New Jersey Avenue will also feature floor-to-ceiling curtainwalls and a six-story parking garage. Reaching 60 feet below grade for the parking garage required one of the deepest and most complicated excavations completed by Clark Construction in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
300 New Jersey Avenue is one of the first commercial office buildings designed by renowned British architect Lord Richard Rogers of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to be built in the United States. HKS of Dallas is the architect of record for this project. Additional team members include TOLK of Fairfax, Va., MEP engineer; SK&A of Rockville, Md., structural engineer; ParkerRodriguez of Alexandria, Va., landscape architect; and Wiles Mensch of Reston, Va., civil engineer.
The project is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2009.
