Maple Lawn Retail #1 and #2

The owner of this project wanted a retail development that would resemble an old-fashioned main street, but there was a catch: The one-story building needed to look like two stories. Using Tilt-Up allowed the large walls necessary for such a project to be raised economically, and also provided the architectural capabilities needed to achieve the main street aesthetic.

To deal with elevation changes, Chesapeake Contracting Group designed the panels to have different heights that would match the exterior grade. Because of site restrictions, the panels were cast in stacks four to six panels high, and thickened panel legs allowed for moment connections.

In keeping with the old-fashioned look, the buildings’ exteriors feature EIFS cornices and moldings, cast-in reveals and multiple brick veneers. Tilt-Up panels also were used to create an octagonal tower feature.

This retail development stands at the entrance to Maple Lawn, a 1,000-acre mixed-use community in the Baltimore/Washington area that also features 600 homes and 1.5 million square feet of office space.
