Westley on Broadway features five stories of luxury apartments that are set above 10,000 square feet of structural precast retail space. The project also includes two levels of underground precast parking totaling 280 parking spaces.
For this project, Molin Concrete Products Company manufactured, delivered, and installed 130 precast concrete columns, 176 prestressed concrete beams; just under 142,000 square feet of 8-inch and 12-inch hollow core planks; 60 solid slabs; 134 8-inch non-insulated precast concrete wall panels; and 86 12-inch insulated architectural precast concrete wall panels.
This project had a challenging, tight jobsite. It’s located at a busy intersection and is surrounded by businesses and other housing complexes. As a solution, Molin Concrete Products Company erected the precast concrete with the crane situated inside the footprint of the structure, allowing for minimal disturbance of traffic and potential road closures in the area.
Mindful of Westport's historical prominence, the architect thoughtfully integrated materials and clean, modern lines that complement the neighborhood's architecture and character. Many of the existing buildings in the area date back to the late 19th century and feature red brick. Thin brick was utilized on the insulated architectural precast panels to match the field installed face brick at the apartment levels on this project.
