Gables Point 14 (Gables N. Rolfe St.)

Located in Arlington, VA, the Gables Rolfe Street project provides 421 residential units, with approximately 400 underground parking spaces.  There are numerous amenity spaces including a rooftop pool, community rooms, fitness center, media room, pet wash, and a larger courtyard separating the 12 story southern tower from the 8 story second building to the north.

The structure consists of post tensioned flat plate floors above grade and mild reinforced flat slabs at the ground levels and the parking levels.  Lateral loads are resisted by reinforced concrete shear walls and the reinforced concrete basement walls.  Structural concrete columns and walls are supported by shallow concrete spread footings and mat slabs bearing on rock.  The upper 5 levels of the 8 level building are framed with Type III wood framing.

The 5 level wood framed Transitional Living Program building to the east was also completed as part of this project to allow the county to move their current program from an aging facility in the middle of the site to a new building on the east edge.
