Houston-based KBR announced today that its building group has been awarded a contract to construct The Acadia at Metropolitan Park, a 411-unit mixed-use residential building in Arlington, VA.
In collaboration with the developer, Kettler, Construction is already under way of the third building to be constructed in the Metropolitan Park development in the area of the Washington, D.C. metro known as Pentagon City.
Designed for LEED Silver certification, the 677,154-square-foot, 19-story building will include three levels of underground parking with ground-floor retail. The Acadia is next to the first two developments built by global engineering, construction and services company KBR, which are The Millennium at Metropolitan Park (completed in 2010) and The Gramercy at Metropolitan (completed in 2008).
KBR's development arm, KBR Building Group, is headquartered in Charlotte, NC. The firm's regional office in Vienna, VA, is leading construction for The Acadia.
