Skanska tops out mixed-use building in McLean
Heming at 1800 Chain Bridge Road to be complete by fourth quarter
Heming at 1800 Chain Bridge Road, a 28-story mixed-use building in McLean, has now been “topped out,’ Skanska announced March 23.
Representatives from Skanska, CallisonRTKL, IMEG Corp., and Skanska’s construction partners commemorated the construction milestone by signing a steel beam and placing it at the highest structural feature of the building, a celebration referred to as topping out, or topping off.
The Heming is part of a 6.5 million-square-foot mixed-use development at Scott’s Run, across from Metro’s McLean Silver Line station, between the headquarters of Capital One Financial Corp. and Mitre.
The milestone means:
- 120,000 cubic yards of material was excavated,
- 37,000 cubic yards of concrete was poured,
- 2,700 tons of rear was laid and
- 380,000 pounds of post tension cables were used.
The Heming is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter. Title will have 410 apartments, 38,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and a three-level outdoor public plaza. Construction began in January 2020 and Skanska invested $221 million.
