Located in downtown Clarendon in Arlington, Virginia, the 400,000 SF Alexan Clarendon contains 333 residential apartment dwelling units distributed among two discrete towers situated on a shared ground level plaza slab. 12th Street bisects the site and required a 5’-0” slab fold to accommodate truck access, two landscape courtyards, and utility clearances.
The two towers consist of 12 and six stories of flat-plate post-tensioned concrete, respectively, while the shared plaza slab consisted of a combination of mild-reinforced flat slab with drop panels and slab fold beams. A single basement level extends for the full footprint of the site and has full perimeter sheeting and shoring due to the adjacent public streets and adjacent properties.
Green roofs are provided at roof terraces at levels 2 and 9. Landscaped amenity areas are located at both buildings with an elevated pool deck located at the taller tower structure.
