christopher has provided site planning, landscape architecture, and surveying for The Foundry, Block 6A of Hoffman Town Center; the majority of which is occupied by an existing office building (Hoffman Office Building #2, a 13-story, approximately 630,000 square foot building.
The project adaptively reuses the building, turning it into a mixed-use property. The building was re-skinned to update the architectural façade. Three residential floors and rooftop amenity spaces were added to the top of the building, two and a half levels of existing office space were converted to above-grade parking to support the added residents and approximately one-half of the existing second floor slab was removed to provide double-height retail space.
In addition to christopher, the project team included architect Cooper Carry, Perseus Realty, Four Points, Balfour Beatty Construction and Jensen Hughes.
The project was awarded Best Building, Adaptive Re-use at the 2020 NAIOP Northern Virginia Focus on Excellence Awards.
