Northland at Grider

Client: Centerstone Development
Facility: Mixed Use/ Adaptive Re-use
Size: Complex wide
Status: Initial design completed in 2007

E.I. Team, working in conjunction with Centerstone Development, developed an exciting new mixed use facility that will interface with the adaptive re-use of the Wyman Gorman Building.  Highlights of the proposed mixed use office and industrial complex include: the reconfiguring of the site to locate loading docks to the interior of site and providing new façade on buildings to improve neighborhood aesthetics.

The project sits a pivotal corner within Centerstone Development’s master plan for revitalizing the Kensington district.  The site affords a high degree of proximity to the expressway as well as participation within one of the city’s longstanding urban fabrics.

Option one (shown) envisions a distribution floor plate of 100,000 square-feet with an adjacent administrative portion allocating 15,000 square-feet per floor.  The more public face of the building looms over the pedestrian realm in order to create a strong corner at Northland and Girder as well as to deploy an inviting and easily discernable entry to the facility.  Visitor parking is accommodated just off Northland while the company spaces are nestled to the rear of the building to be kept out of view.
