This high-rise development incorporates a four-star hotel, condominium, 18,000 square feet of banquet and meeting space, a 7,000 square foot restaurant, retail and a detached six-story parking garage. At more than a million square feet, it consists of a midrise 10-story element flanked by towers of 27 and 30 stories.
Energy modeling (VE PRO) was used to assure the building maintains compliance with strict energy codes, despite large expanses of glass and enhanced lighting systems.
Energy saving measures, including heat recovery chillers, gas-phase energy recovery and rainwater harvesting are incorporated into the design.
Wind tunnel modeling was used to minimize shear walls and foundations, and post tensioning runs were completed in the Revit model of the building to assure architectural changes were integrated into the structural design.
