Wiles Mensch Corporation – DC (WM) provided surveying and civil engineering services for the redevelopment of Riverside Baptist Church located in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood of Washington, DC. A longstanding institution of DC’s Southwest neighborhood, the new church remains a centerpiece of a reimagined waterfront district. Strategically located at a major gateway into the SW neighborhood, it provides a link to the redeveloping waterfront.
This project is a unique development as it incorporates both a residential tower and worship space on site. The church includes a fellowship hall and office space totaling approximately 11,400 SF. The residential tower is nine stories high, housing approximately 170 units, as well as a ground floor community-oriented space.
Scope of services includes a traffic control plan, topographic and utility surveys, and sediment and erosion control plans. The facilities were designed to meet LEED Silver requirements.
