Foundry Row

Project summary provided by submitting company.

Foundry Row is a great example of how one project can change the dynamic of an entire area. Foundry Row was able to remediate the property from environmental damage and change an abandoned Solo-Cup factory site into a useful development for the Owings Mills community. This project consisted of all new infrastructure, widening of roads, new intersections, traffic signals, 12 one-story retail buildings and 1 three-story retail/office building, all totaling 350,000 SF on a 45-acre site. Foundry Row is a great example of the tilt-up method of construction. Needing to appeal to a variety of local and national tenants while still being economical, Tilt-Up allowed the facility to be built under tight time constraints, affordable and with flexible design. Some of the feature anchor building projects included DSW, Old Navy, LA Fitness, HomeGoods and Ulta. Some select smaller retail chain projects included Mission BBQ, Chipotle, Panera Bread, Nalley Fresh and Bar Louie. Due to the 42 feet elevation change from Reisterstown Road to the back of the site, the tilt-up panels allowed for an economical method to raise the front elevation and obtain a radius top through the tilt-wall method. This project should be considered for a Tilt-Up Achievement Award because, by using the tilt-up method, we were able to greatly reduce the cost of construction (as opposed to using structural steel and light gauge framing). This method also allowed us to meet the quick construction schedule on-time by saving us weeks on the schedule. Chesapeake Contracting Group also overcame challenging grade changes from one end of the site to the other and brought a commercial and mixed-use destination to a much-needed area.
