Size & Type of Project - New Apartment Complex
Prosperity Flats is a new $50 Million apartment complex located in Merrifield, Virginia within easy walking distance of the Dunn Loring METRO. The apartment building is 12 stories and consists of approximately 368,000 square feet. The building is supported by spread foundations featuring mildly reinforced cast-in-place concrete columns and post-tension concrete elevated decks. Designed to meet LEED Silver requirements, the complex houses 327 units plus 3,000 SF of commercial space.
In addition to the apartment tower, construction included a new four story independent, free standing parking garage housing approximately 382 cars. The superstructure utilizes pre-engineered precast/prestressed concrete components. The approximate gross framed area of the parking garage equals 101,900 gross framed square feet.
The project developer was also the general contractor; therefore, the project proceeded using the design/build method of project delivery.
