Thornton Tomasetti is performing structural design services for a new mixed-use development consisting of four structures on a 4.4-acre site. The complex will provide 340 apartments, 150,000 square feet of office space and 130,000 square feet of retail, shopping and entertainment options.
The project’s centerpiece is a 24-story residential tower, with a striking façade that steps back to increase sun exposure to balconies at all levels. At a height of 300 feet, it will be the tallest building in Montgomery County.
The development will also provide a multi-screen movie theater, parking for 750 vehicles and a new public plaza. The pedestrian-oriented project will also include a new public plaza. Sustainability features include green roofs on each of the four buildings, a pedestrian-friendly layout, bio-filters, and underground filter systems.
