Avenue North (you can visit the website here is slated to be an upscale, mixed-use campus combining office, commercial, residential, and hotel uses. EDiS Company assisted during the due diligence period and was hired by Delle Donne & Associates as the Construction Manager.

Most recently, the EDiS team wrapped up the new Avenue North Lot H Parking Garage in anticipation of the complex’s growth. The garage features 1,373 parking spots, electrical charging stations, and green screening that will continue to grow throughout the years. A crucial component to completing this project on time and on budget was the expedient ordering of the buildings main structure, the pre-cast, which can sometimes take over a year to fabricate and deliver. The lot close by, Lot F, was also upgraded to accommodate the growing worker population.

Other improvements to the complex included renovating the shell and core of the former Fairfax Office Pavilion in advance of Solenis LLC moving its headquarters there. EDiS also completed the fit-out of the Solenis space.
