New corporate building for Department of Defense awarded to HKS, Studios and Wisnewski 

The U.S. Department of the Army selected Mark Center in Alexandria, Virginia as the site to relocate 6,400 U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) agency employees from Arlington, as part of the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC) federally mandated by Congress in 2005.

HKS Architects working in collaboration with Studios Architecture and Wisnewski Blair & Associates will design the 350-acre mixed-use campus at the southwest intersection of I-395 and Seminary Road, only four miles from the Pentagon. The building, located on the 12-building Mark Center campus, will consist of 1.7 million sq ft of new office space.

“The administrative office campus at Mark Center for the DoD is designed to create a world-class workplace,” said Mike Nicolaus, AIA, principal and senior designer with HKS, Inc. “High security and workplace excellence are defining elements of the development. The cornerstone of the design is a flexible, efficient layout with large floor plates to allow for modularization of the tenant planning. Architecturally, the office campus is visually appealing inside and out, complementing the existing campus workplace environment and integrating with the natural setting.”

The 16-acre land parcel at Mark Center has the supporting infrastructure in place for the proposed new development as well as necessary zoning approvals from the City of Alexandria. The corporate campus will be completed by the federally mandated BRAC date of September 15, 2011.
