Bridge Erection and Topping Out: Parcel I at The Yards

June 30, 2022

Sitting between the Nationals ballpark and the Anacostia River, construction of Parcel I at The Yards is well underway. SK&A joined Brookfield Properties, Hitt Contracting, and Perkins Eastman for the Topping Out celebration.

Built to LEED Silver standards, Parcel I will feature 379 apartments and 16,000 SF of ground-floor retail. Of particular engineering-interest is the double-height fitness bridge. On June 18th, two 100-foot trusses for the bridge were lifted into place. Toby Millman, SVP of Brookfield, commented “The design of the fitness bridge adds a unique silhouette to the development, which will continue The Yards’ style of dynamic and thoughtful architecture to the neighborhood.”

The anticipated completion for Parcel I is Fall 2023. It is one of the many projects SK&A has worked on in The Yards Phase I and Phase II developments. Once Phase II is complete, The Yards will be the largest waterfront development in the DC Region!
