Restoration Diary: Underpinning the Foundation Walls

Posted on: April 24th, 2012 by David Garber 1 Comment

Although things don't *look* all that different inside the future Lionel Lofts building on DC's 14th Street, NW, there's been a fair amount of important progress expanding the basement to the back of the building and underpinning (extending and strengthening) the foundation.

As you can see in the photos below, underpinning is dirty work -- but doing this the right way will ensure that the restored and adapted building will stay standing for as long as it's used and treasured.


More information on this development project can be found on the Lionel Lofts website.
