The Midtown Row mixed-use development in Williamsburg, VA is taking shape as steel and concrete podiums are in place and wood framing is complete on multiple buildings. Midtown Row includes four new mixed-use buildings with 70,000 square feet of retail, office, and housing for over 620 residents, two grocery-anchored shopping centers with community-serving retail, an activated community green space, and parking garage. Buildings 1 and 4, the two larger L-shaped buildings, will be the first to be constructed. Building 1 will serve as the main hub for community and resident interaction. It will house the leasing office and a series of amenity spaces for the residents including an exterior patio with a pool.

Last semester, the firm welcomed to the studio a talented intern, Michael Njo, an IPAL student from The Catholic University of America. The IPAL (Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure) program was created by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) in 2015. The program offers a dynamic, innovative path to licensure for students who are dedicated to becoming an architect by integrating the opportunity to gain the real-world experience necessary to complete the Architectural Experience Program® (AXP®) and ensuring that each IPAL student can take all six divisions of the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®).
