The Residences of Terrell Place

Our work included the preservation and stabilization of the existing four-level, cast-iron facade of the historic Murray Building (circa 1868), and reattachment of the facade to the new 62,000 SF, 10-level concrete structure. The facade columns were supported on temporary bracing, then the brick pier below the cast iron facade columns were removed. Work included a new 7,400 SF cellar level tunnel constructed to connect to the existing AARP headquarters building. Upon completion, a Washington Post article stated, "Magical is a word one is tempted to use for the entire project.”
