Cardno is the structural engineer for all three phases of Washington Gateway, a large mixed-use complex in Washington, D.C. that is comprised of three residential towers, below-grade parking, and structured urban plaza.

Washington Gateway is located in the NOMA District (North of Massachusetts Avenue) in Washington, D.C. one block from the New York Avenue Metro Station.

When completed, Washington Gateway will be a 1 million sf mixed-use complex with a structured urban plaza featuring a central fountain and extensive landscaping features. 

Phase One, the Elevation at Washington Gateway, is a 14-story, 400-unit apartment building above three levels of below-grade parking. Roof top amenities include a pool, sun deck, party room and Capital views. Additional amenities include a grand lobby, grand staircase and mixed media art wall. This cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete structure was completed in 2014. 

Developers will continue the transformation of the Washington Gateway site in Phases Two and Three with the addition of two residential towers with below-grade parking.  

A bike lobby that connects the Metropolitan Branch Trail with Florida Avenue, NE will link the towers. Bike lobby amenities are anticipated to include bike racks, benches, a staircase with bike troughs down to the plaza and a possible bike repair station. 

The Phase Two and Three residential structures will also be cast-in-place post tensioned concrete.
