According to an article in the Washington Business Journal, the Eisenhower Memorial Commission has chosen Gilbane Building Company to oversee the design and construction management of Eisenhower Square, the memorial dedicated to President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Back in March, Frank Gehry was chosen to design the memorial, which will be a four-acre site located across from the National Air & Space Museum and the Department of Education headquarters at 4th Street & Independence Avenue. Construction of Eisenhower Square will require the closure of Maryland Avenue, which bisects the site, but the view shed towards the Capitol Building will need to be maintained. It will cost anywhere from $90 million to $110 million to build the memorial and it should be complete by 2014.
