The Wharf is a $2 billion, world-class, mixed-use, mixed-income waterfront community at the District of Columbia’s Southwest Waterfront. Parcels 6 and 7 are planned to be two trophy office buildings with an extensive ground floor retail zone.
The building envelope comprises four major types of vertical and horizontal facades with a total glazed and opaque area of approx. 250.000 sqft. Level 1 and 2 are slender aluminum systems with large vertical spans and high visual requirements. The same high-quality system will be used for the Penthouse Glazing. Levels 3 - 10 are enclosed by a shingeled and staggered aluminum unitized system, with fixed inclined glazing and external decorative SSTL frames. Glazing and framing of the corner units will be curved.
