Clark Construction Group and Federal Realty Investment Trust joined representatives from Choice Hotels, Sodexo, and design and trade partners to celebrate the topping out of 915 Meeting Street in North Bethesda on Nov. 18.
Structural concrete operations have been completed at the 276,000-sq. ft. office building, the latest component of Pike & Rose, a 24-acre, transit-oriented neighborhood featuring retail, dining, and entertainment spaces.
The Gensler-designed project will feature 6,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail, 250,000-sq. ft. of office space, and 545 parking spaces.
The building will feature a glass curtainwall system façade detailed with metal panels and precast concrete. 915 Meeting Street is targeting LEED Gold certification.
Choice Hotels International and Sodexo are among the building’s largest lessees.
Since breaking ground in December 2021, Clark has poured more than 35,000 cubic yards of concrete to shape the project. With structural concrete complete, the team is focused on the façade and interior finishes activities.
“This is such an exciting moment for the entire project team,” Clark Construction vice-president Andy Fuhrmann said in a statement. “The topping out ceremony is an opportunity to pause and recognize the hard work of the craftworkers that have dedicated over 215,000 hours to reach this tremendous milestone.”
“We are privileged to partner with Federal Realty and Clark Construction on a truly extraordinary achievement. 915 Meeting Street has catalyzed development in North Bethesda and brings together a dynamic mix of amenity-driven office and retail,” said Theresa Sheils, principal and managing director at Gensler.
Clark is set to deliver the project in the third quarter of 2022.
