Brief Description:

Ponte Mellor Architects was retained to design an office building in the Historic District of Manassas, Virginia for Morais Properties Inc.

This four level building maintains the context of the district and provides a template for future development along Center Street. Retail and restaurant uses are accommodated on the ground floor with a sidewalk canopy enhancing the storefronts and bringing human scale to the streetscape. Office space for the owner's business and additional lease space comprise the upper three levels. Ponte Mellor provided conceptual design, and has conducted a review with the Manassas Historic Review Board where it was enthusiastically received. Ponte Mellor Architects was contracted to provide design development, construction documents, and construction administration for the project.
