Grand Central at Kennedy is an urban living concept nestled within two city blocks. The amenities of this project are spectacular, but the architectural details, solid engineering and top-notch construction are what make it a true gem.
This 1,400,000 sf project consists of two towers separated by a major street. The West Building (Building 1) is 14-stories while the East Building (Building 2) is 12-stories. These buildings house 378 luxury residential condominiums, a community theater, an art gallery, retail areas, restaurants, office spaces, two swimming pools and more. Ample parking is provided between the 2nd and 8th floor of both buildings providing a total of more than 1300 parking spaces.
The framing system consists of post-tensioned concrete slabs supported by concrete columns for the gravity system and concrete shear walls for the lateral system which provided the architect more flexibility and freedom in column layout and accommodated the aggressive construction schedule.
