700 Penn Reaches Project Milestone
August 19, 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A year after breaking ground, the 700 Penn project team has completed concrete operations on two of the three buildings that will make up the 415,000 square-foot, mixed-use development located in the Eastern Market neighborhood in Washington, D.C.
To reach this milestone, the project team planned and placed 30,000 cubic yards of concrete, 115,000 linear feet of conduit, 3,500 sleeves in decks, and 50,000 square feet of below-grade waterproofing.
When complete, the 700 Penn development will feature two residential buildings with 128 units, all situated on top of a multi-level, below-grade garage. The seven-story office building will be clad in curtain wall and ornate precast, while the residential buildings will feature a brick façade.
Once construction of the three buildings is complete, the Clark team will work to reconnect 7th and 8th Streets with C Street on the north side of the project.
The project is designed to achieve LEED® Gold certification and will boast 47,000 square feet of green roof space.
Construction of 700 Penn is expected to be complete next summer.
