Construction Today 2018 - Volume 16, Issue 3 - 145
Carl Walker was awarded the contract to finalize the design/
build of a 588-space precast parking structure. The project's
challenges included contending with an unusually high concentration of adjoining construction projects, site reclamation
necessitated by previous contamination and a tight footprint
abutting a restricted railroad.
The design involved special façade elements to complement
the aesthetic of sister developments. The elevator and stair
tower was designed with ground face precast walls ,and spandrel
panels were stained to match the neighborhood. Retail space
utilized a glass storefront highlighted by a stamped/dyed patio
surrounded by railings of stainless steel and glass.
