Location: Norwalk, CT
Construction Manager at Risk* for this significant lifestyle-center development in downtown Norwalk, CT. KBE is managing the construction of the new 550,500 sf, 3-story enclosed mall with street level shops, along with an 8-story, 1.2 million sf parking structure. When completed, the project will encompass more than 2.5 million sf, including an additional 300,000 sf anchor store and potential 115,000 sf planned by the developer. The parking structure uses a precast filigree system with concrete topping slab at the parking deck. The 60-foot-long transfer beams installed above the precast garage were imported from Europe, as US steel mills do not have the capacity to produce this size beam. Although the precast filigree system is not commonly used, it offers the advantage of higher floor-to-ceiling heights in the garage. *KBE is managing the project with its joint venture, VCC.
