ST. ELIZABETH PARKING LOTS
Location: 2730 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave., SE Washington, DC
Client: District Department of General Services
This Design-Build project was to construct 3 temporary surface parking lots on St. Elizabeth’s East Campus. These parking lots would be located at the Dorothea Dix Administration Building, R.I.S.E Demonstration Center and Parcel 15 located at 2730 Martin Luther King, Jr. Ave in Southeast, DC. The temporary parking lots includes 876 parking spaces with ADA and valet parking. This project was in response to the ongoing redevelopment of the East Campus, which included the need for additional temporary parking for the Gateway Pavilion, and the Entertainment & Sports Arena (ESA) facility.
Fort Myer worked with KCI Technologies in the design and development of the temporary parking lots. The work included the demolition of selected sections of the site, tree removal, and utility demolition. Our team was responsible for installation of drainage facilities, lighting, and constructing 3 new parking lots.
Due to future projects at this site starting in the fall, this 14 million dollar project was scheduled to be completed on a fast-track of 4 months. With a short and strict deadline, this is an excellent example of Fort Myer’s ability to complete a project under a tight schedule.
