Foster on the Park

Foster on the Park is an 8 story mixed use project in downtown Durham, NC.   Directly adjacent to Durham Central Park and the Durham Farmers Market,  Foster on the Park will provide unique access to this up and coming area of Durham.

This project consists of 3 elevated levels of post tensioned concrete slab and 5 levels of Type III timber construction.   Retail, amenity spaces, and a pool are provided in the concrete levels with an additional amenity space on the upper timber level overlooking the park.  Significant grade change around the site resulted in several different retaining conditions.  Shallow foundations were used.
