ABOUT THE PROJECT
This urban infill project is located in the Shaw Historic district in Washington D.C., adjacent to the existing Washington Convention Center and the new Marriott Marquis Convention Hotel. The new 12-story mixed-use development consists of a dual-brand hotel component and a residential component, both including the adaptive reuse of eight existing historic buildings currently on the project site. Several features have been added to enhance day lighting of the interior and minimize mechanical system expenses. With the integration of 14,200 sf of vegetated green roofs, the project site will have the potential to collect over 45,000 gallons of storm water stored in underground cisterns. Columbia Place enhances the surrounding community by connecting to the sense of place and allowing the architecture to harmoniously inhabit the context on a human scale. The project is in being completed by tvsdesign and Associate Architect Cooper Carry.
