670/680 Maine Makes ArchDC Summer Cover

670/680 Maine made the cover story in ArchictureDC's Summer Issue! The article, linked below, includes insights from WDG Principal Doug James, AIA, and SHoP Founding Principal Bill Sharples, AIA.

"'They've been fantastic on both projects and the results show,' said Sharples regarding WDG, which was founded in DC in 1938. 'It's always vital to have a great partner.'"

A major component of The Wharf's second phase, this iconic, 556,000-sf trophy office building enhances the waterfront experience with a modern design, interlaced circulation, articulated details, and a LEED Gold® certification, while continuing the retail promenade established in Phase I. Two 11-story towers feature freestanding floor plates, private indoor/outdoor entertainment and meeting spaces with impeccable DC views, a fitness center, and signature arrival through the Oculus.

WDG was thrilled to be the Executive Architect on this project, in collaboration with clients Hoffman-Madison Waterfront (Hoffman & Associates and Madison Marquette); architects SHoP Architects, HYL Architecture, and Perkins Eastman; and consultants SK&A Structural Engineers, AMT Engineering, Balfour Beatty US, Salas O'Brien, Acoustics2, knippershelbig, Jensen Hughes, RHI, Sustainable Building Partners, MCLA Architectural Lighting Design, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger (SGH), Lerch Bates Inc., Catt Lyon Design, RWDI, Arup, Advanced Building Performance, Inc., TSI Corporations, Fabbrica, and Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope.
