As part of Alexandria’s Waterfront Redevelopment Plan, Clark will construct a five-story, 120-room hotel that will be operated by Hotel Indigo. The hotel will feature one below-grade level of parking. The 75,000 square-foot building is designed to complement the historic colonial-style homes surrounding the area. The building’s façade will be comprised of masonry with antique metal star accents, and intricate brickwork. The roof will be a sloped mansard style. 
 
220 South Union Street is located next to the Potomac River. The project team will install a dewatering system around the site to control groundwater. The deep foundations system will include auger cast piles to anchor the building in the marsh-like soils. Due to the site’s historic significance, excavation of the area will be completed in three phases to allow an archaeologist to inspect the soil for historic artifacts.
 
The project is designed to achieve LEED® Silver certification.
 
Substantial completion is scheduled for March 2017.
