The Wharf promenade and mews spaces, Phase 1 and 2. We walk in these beautiful and inviting outdoor spaces, enjoying all they have to offer, while unseen elements are critical to making it all remain watertight and functional.
“What sets the innovative market-driven vision of the District Wharf apart from others is its captivating pedestrian experience. Placemaking design strategies yield adaptable human-scaled spaces in between each building in the form of open spaces and alley ways, each with a distinct character.
Wharf Street is a flexible mile-long shared street with café zones and promenade space running parallel to the water. The architecture along this key spine including the Pierhouse and a series of pavilions for retail, dining, and other activities shape a unique experience along the water. Small alleys—also known as mews—are multi-purpose. Not only can they be used for musical performances, quiet escapes, and impromptu gatherings, they also act as service access for larger buildings, provide alternate walking routes, and offer protection from the elements.”
A versatile waterproofing solution able to accommodate a broad range of detailing problems and tie into all the buildings was critical to the performance of the overall project – 1.5 million square feet of below-grade structures span the Wharf development, covered by those exterior horizontal spaces described above. Water must be kept out.
How are all those horizontal spaces and the accompanying myriad of building tie ins, penetrations and various details kept watertight?
