Liberty Park at Tysons’ project scope included renovation and rehabilitation of a traditional office building and existing warehouse into a $100+ million mission critical data center that was developed by a Developer in coordination with two government agencies: the General Services Administration (GSA) and an undisclosed government tenant. Liberty Park is now a 235,000± SF secured government facility.
The project team’s mission included:
- Renovation of a 1970s pre-existing structure
- A building addition
- A parking structure
- A façade with a new architectural precast panel and glass system
- Roof replacement
- Upgrade of civil, mechanical, and electrical distribution systems of the building and site
- Upgrade of the civil engineering and dry utility infrastructure
- Site design and final engineering for the 9-11 Artifact Memorial
- Tenant build-out.
The site also includes a 9-11 Artifact Memorial with use of six artifacts in and around the office space used by the Terrorist Screening Center. The plan, created by the Architect and VIKA, includes three restored flagpoles from the World Trade Center, each 60 feet tall, which are arranged around a small stone memorial in the front of the facility. A trident from the World Trade Center has been re-purposed as a sculpture in the back of the building. The two other existing tridents stand side-by-side in New York, anchored in the original foundation of the World Trade Center. A short structural steel column from the North Tower is also located inside the building, and a piece of the limestone base of the Pentagon stands outside the building, carved with a dedication and description of the memorial.
