From a press release:

“Officials at Hoffman-Madison Waterfront (HMW), a joint venture of Hoffman & Associates and Madison Marquette, the co-developers of The Wharf, announced today that DPR Construction, one of the nation’s leading technical builders focused on highly complex and sustainable projects has been selected as the fourth and final contractor for Phase 2. DPR Construction’s role in Phase 2 consists of contracts for two retail buildings constructed on top of newly built piers (Water Building 1 and Water Building 2), as well as a trophy-class, boutique office building (Parcel 10).

DPR Construction is a national commercial contractor and construction manager recognized for establishing thoughtful processes when approaching complex projects. As the selected contractor, DPR Construction’s team of experts will be tapped to make viable solutions towards the technical challenges that arise when building upon an axis created by the site’s landside and waterside. The scope of work and tailored construction includes:

Water Building 1and Water Building 2: These buildings will sit upon the edge of the Washington Channel atop a new concrete pier. Water Building 1 will be a two-story, fine dining, single tenant building with an outdoor terrace on the roof level designed by architecture firm Hollwich Kushner. The building will feature a simply detailed glass box with large interior spaces housed within a striking truss exterior. Water Building 2 will feature a refined exterior façade composed of zinc-coated steel panels with wood fins designed by architecture firm S9 and will house maritime services and retail on the ground floor and restaurant/bar on the second floor. The green roof will serve as a bridge between the land and water providing visible roof-scape for occupants of adjacent buildings. Together, the two buildings will total approximately 34,000 square feet.

Parcel 10: A five-story, trophy office building that will include ground floor retail. The building is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification and features expansive terraces and outdoor spaces with waterfront views. The 88,000-square-foot building will be designed by Morris Adjmi Architects.

Announced earlier this year, Balfour Beatty’s role in Phase 2 consists of work contracts for all horizontal and public spaces (site work, utilities, hardscape and parks), office buildings in Parcels 6 and 7, as well as below-grade parking garages. Donohoe Construction’s role in Phase 2 consists of work contracts for Parcels 8 and 9 featuring the planned 255-unit residential apartment building, 131-key Pendry Washington, D.C. – The Wharf hotel, and 96-unit luxury condominium.

At full build out, Phase 2 of The Wharf will feature an additional 1.25 million square feet of mixed-use development, including office, residential, marina, and retail space, as well as parks and public spaces, across an approximate half mile of waterfront.

Phase 2 of The Wharf is scheduled to deliver in 2022.”
