Arlington, VA — SIGAL Construction Corporation is currently underway with four projects for Douglas Development in DC: The Coliseum (Uline Arena), The Equitable Building, Gang of Three, and 920 Rhode Island Avenue.
The Coliseum (Uline Arena)
The site of The Beatles’ first concert in the United States is being renovated into a 340,000 SF mixed-use development. The new development transforms the original Arena Building and Icehouse Building, both registered historic properties, into commercial mixed-use buildings featuring ground floor retail with offices above. The Coliseum is located in DC’s NoMa neighborhood near Union Station. SIGAL’s project team includes: Andrew Huang, Phil Mueller and Roshni Patnaik.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first concert in the US, the DC Preservation League hosted an event at The Coliseum on February 11th which was attended by more than 3,000 people.
The Equitable Building
This 23,000 SF project includes the renovation and addition to the historic Equitable Bank building. Originally built in 1911, construction includes the restoration of original, ornate plasterwork the building was known for. Project scope also includes the demolition of a two story structure in the rear of the property and the addition of a seven story office building which will be incorporated into the historic bank building. SIGAL’s project team includes: Andrew Huang, Phil Mueller, Johny Ramia, Roshni Patnaik, and Steve Shaw.
Gang of Three
This project entails the 12,000 SF restoration and expansion of three historic townhouses; the team is restoring the buildings partially destroyed by fire and abandoned for many years to their original exterior. The interiors have been gutted and will be incorporated into the new structure creating one mixed-use development from three residential buildings. Located in the historic Blagden Alley/Naylor Court neighborhood of Washington, DC, Gang of Three is conveniently located across from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. SIGAL’s project team includes: Andrew Huang, Phil Mueller, Roshni Patnaik, and Colin Courtillet.
