View a market:

The Skysail Condominium project is a five-story multi-use structure with a separate cast-in-place parking deck. This unusually shaped building, comprising approximately 260,000 square feet, has serpentine twists and turns that required multiple expansion joints and a highly irregular column layout with several transfer girders. The design of Skysail was challenging due to the unusual length, stepped fascia, irregular column layout and poor soil conditions. Skysail exemplifies the atypical concrete building, where the flexibility of the structural system accommodates the complex architectural design without compromising the building’s interior space and layout.
