The First Building of The Bridge District Breaks Ground

May 19, 2022

SK&A joined Developer Redbrick for the groundbreaking of The Douglass, the first of six buildings at the massive Bridge District Mixed-Use Megadevelopment.

Formerly known as Columbian Quarter, plans for the 4.5-acre site near the Anacostia Metro station include over 2 million square feet of development. Opportunities for innovative engineering at The Douglass include below-grade construction beneath the flood plain using a “bathtub” design, as well as contributions to the project’s sustainability goals with the concrete mixes utilizing a cement-reducing admixture. This 757-unit apartment building will be carbon net-zero!

The SK&A team on this project, working together with ZGF Architects and Hitt Contracting, includes Walid Choueiri, PE, SE, Dan Cocciardi, PE, SE, and Eric Iavarone, EIT.
