Spoke Apartments

This 224-unit, 335,000+ SF project has five-stories of type IIIA wood framed construction on top of a two-story tall post-tensioned concrete frame. It also included 103,000 SF of parking space. The podium slab at the top level of the concrete frame was braced using ordinary reinforced concrete moment frames between the slab and its supporting concrete columns. A large interior courtyard with elevated pool was framed into the PT podium slab using thickened slab transitions and deep PT beams. There is one level of elevated parking on PT slab below the podium slab and parking on grade at the basement level. A large Sky Club at level 7 required extensive structural analysis to cantilever deck and allow for sloped concrete topping slab.

Due to a large variance in grading across the site, basement walls up to two stories tall were required around the building.

This project featured extensive amenity spaces at the podium level with two levels of steel and wood transfer framing to support the units above and create the open spaces desired by the architect and ownership.
