This project features 423 residential units, over 395,000 SF of gross rentable residential area and over 12,000 SF of retail. It includes two residential buildings, each with 5 stories of Type IIIA wood-framed construction on top of post-tensioned concrete frames. The podium slabs are braced using ordinary reinforced concrete moment frames between the podium slabs and supporting cast-in-place columns. Columns are supported on shallow spread footings bearing on soils improved by rammed aggregate pier soil reinforcing.
Both residential buildings have a precast parking deck. The Building 100 parking deck is supported on shallow spread footings bearing on soils improved by rammed aggregate pier soil reinforcing. The Building 200 parking deck is supported on spread footings bearing directly on partially weathered rock.
Due to the proximity of the new residential buildings to the existing parking decks servicing the Palisades Office Tower, E+M Structural faced unique design challenges to provide adequate foundation supports for the new residential buildings without affecting the existing parking decks for the office tower.
