The Melville Condominium at Port Warwick
The multi-award winning Melville Condominium is conveniently located on Walt Whitman Avenue near trendy restaurants and shops in the Port Warwick area of Newport News, VA.
Speight Marshall Francis served as Structural Engineer of Record and Special Inspector for this 5-story, 48-unit condominium building (4 stories, 16 units per floor) with parking, retail space, offices and restaurants on the street level. The condominiums are two- and three-bedrooms on one level with elevators to the other levels. The building is constructed of composite steel and concrete. Our firm also designed a separate parking structure. The parking structure and walkway roofs have high tensile fabric canopies that required structural steel support and anchorage.
In 2007 this project was awarded the “Best Multi-Family” project by the Hampton Roads Association for Commercial Real Estate. In 2008 the Hampton Roads Chapter of the American Institute of Architects presented the project with a Design Honor Award.
