Waterfront Station Gets Facade Treatment

The West Tower of Waterfront Station has started to receive part of its facade. So far, glass has been wrapped around two sides of the building, but the terracotta portion of the facade that will run along the reopened 4th Street has yet to be installed. However, some of the insulation that goes beneath the terracotta is already up. Local architect Shalom Baranes has designed the 1st phase of Waterfront Station. To see what the terracotta may look like, take a look at JDLand's site for photos of 55 M Street, SE, which was also designed by Baranes. The West Tower is planned to be complete by the first quarter of 2010. (The above photo of the West Tower was taken on April 5th)
