Brand & Wilson – Glendale, CA
Portfolio | High Density
The mixed-use, 250-unit residential building in downtown Glendale includes five-stories of Type III wood framing with upper story mezzanine units over the podium with two stories above grade and two parking levels below, all utilizing mild reinforced concrete slabs. The design incorporated exposed concrete braces on the street level as part of a dual lateral force resisting system. Exterior walls were not used in the residential lateral shearwall system as a finite element, semi-rigid diaphragm analysis is used to analyze the wood-framed structure.
