The first phase of the Gallery at Kenwood includes luxury apartments + parking. The garage sits in the midst of the apartment structure, with three of the four faces wrapped entirely by the apartments. The one visible end of the garage is clad in a precast façade. The parking garage is a post-tensioned one-way slab + beam system, and utilizes a three bay wide layout with a center ramp.
The site posed a few challenges. Poor soils led to the suggestion of drilled piers, but after pricing, the owner decided to install geopiers. In addition, an approximately 17 ft grade change across the site led to multi-story entrances into both the apartment + parking structures in addition to numerous retaining + basement wall conditions.
