ENR Names Three Clark Mid-Atlantic Projects ‘Best of’ 2020

Clark Construction Group is proud to announce that Engineering News-Record (ENR) Mid-Atlantic recently honored three Clark Construction Group projects in its Regional Best Projects Awards.

The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial project earned the top spot in their category and will be considered for the ENR “Best of the Best” national award.

The winning projects are:

Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial (Best Cultural/Worship Project) 

Client: Eisenhower Memorial Commission & General Services Administration
Architect: Gehry Partners, LLP / AECOM, A Joint Venture

The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial transformed a four-acre Washington, DC site into the first national presidential memorial of the 21st century. Located south of the National Mall, the Memorial features extensive landscaping and hardscaping with large monumental-scale statuaries and inscribed stone blocks. The site also showcases a 450-foot long transparent, woven metal tapestry supported by a cable net system and a series of 80-foot tall monumental-scale columns. Providing a dramatic backdrop to the Memorial, the tapestry features an image of a peacetime scene of the Normandy coastline.

Central Records Complex (Award of Merit, Government/Public Building Project)

Client: General Services Administration
Architect: HGA Architects and Engineers

A 256,000-square-foot design-build secure, state-of-the-art records and technology center, the Central Records Complex (CRC) was designed to centralize physical files and streamline the storage, retrieval, and management of mission-critical assets. To accomplish this, the facility was designed and constructed to utilize an automated storage and retrieval system. The project was completed ahead of schedule and on budget, with no lost-time injuries.

The Boro (Award of Merit, Office/Retail, Mixed-Use Project)

Client: The Meridian Group and KETTLER
Architect: Shalom Baranes Associates

The Boro is a 16-acre mixed-use development in Northern Virginia that includes three residential buildings, a five-story office building, and a vibrant mix of retail and entertainment spaces. The three residential buildings - Rise, Bolden, and Verse - range in size from 13 to 32 stories.

The 32-story Rise has more than 400 apartments. Overlooking Boro Park, Bolden offers 133 apartment residences that combine sumptuous interiors with a myriad of social spaces. Both Rise and Bolden sit atop one of the largest Whole Foods Markets in the country, and feature fitness centers, yoga studios, club rooms with entertainment kitchens, and pools with lounging areas. Verse, the third residential component, is a 25-story condominium building containing 140 luxury units and amenity-rich features such as a high-performance fitness studio, pet spa, and entertainment kitchen.

Rise, Bolden, and Verse are all connected on the 9th level by “SkyPark,” a shared outdoor amenity space that features a theater, bar area, grilling stations, bocce court, fire pits, and lounges overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains.
