Location:
2310 Empire Center, Burbank, CA

Owner:
Higgins Development Partners

Architect or Engineer:
Parkitects

Design/Build Contractor:
Klorman Construction

Description of Project:
The 6-level, 1,234-stall, 403,000-square-foot, post-tensioned, moment-frame parking structure services the 364,000-square-foot, 7-story office building that is the last piece of the Empire Center, a 105-acre master planned retail, hotel and office project near Bob Hope Airport. The parking structure is built over a 10-foot deep soil cap designed to isolate contaminants left over from Lockheed Aircraft Co.’s long time manufacturing at the site. Due to its proximity to Burbank Airport, the parking structure had to accommodate the Federal Aviation Administration’s imposed 75’ height restriction. The tiered design, with the upper three levels stepping back one bay, minimizes any shadow that may be cast on residents across from the adjacent railroad.

Description of Project:
Klorman Construction is the Design/Build contractor of the 716-car, 196,000-square-foot parking structure for The Vue, a $175 million high-rise residential waterfront community in San Pedro, Ca. The five-level, concrete post-tensioned parking structure features bridges at each parking level connected to the lower floor of The Vue’s 15-story condominium tower. The project offered some unique challenges, including the need for the parking structure’s foundation to overlay an existing matt slab foundation from a previous office building. Additionally, in an effort to merge The Vue’s distinct architectural style with Old Town San Pedro, Klorman Construction integrated an art wall into the part of the structure facing an adjacent city park adding a feature to be enjoyed by the park patrons.
