Midtown Center serves as a nexus of retail, office, and public space in the heart of the nation’s capital.
 

This mixed-use development features 45,000 square feet of retail space, multiple three-story atria, and three levels of below-grade parking, as well as a fitness center, rooftop terrace, and private alley. 

Three structural steel "tunnel" bridges span more than 110 feet across the site's courtyard, connecting the east and west towers with an interior walkway (inside the bridges) and an exterior walkway (on top of the bridges, open to the air).

The building integrates itself with its environment and honors local architectural traditions through its unique glass and copper facade designed to slowly patina over time. The distinctive façade features a unique, patterned glass curtain wall with multiple elevations of 3D panels and pre-patinated copper cladding. Designed to achieve LEED®Gold certification, the structure optimizes solar shading while maintaining maximum daylight conditions for interior workplaces. Midtown Center occupants enjoy state-of-the-art building systems,extensive access to light and air, and unparalleled amenities in one of Washington’s most iconic settings. 

Clark Foundations designed and installed a complex support of excavation system consisting of tiebacks, corner braces, rakers, underpinning pits, and bracket piles to secure the excavation prior to cast in place concrete mobilization.
