Square 103/Phase 1 - Law Learning Center & Garage

Completed Fall 2013

Part of the green roof part of the garage


Located at 2028 G Street, this project houses one level of program space for GW's Law School and four levels of underground parking containing approximately 392 parking spaces. The surface of this project contains entrances to below-grade space as well as approximately 58 additional parking spaces, university loading and service activity, and landscaping. The university plans to construct the above-ground building at a future date and this project will be subject to a separate second-stage Planned Unit Development (PUD) application and Campus Plan application.


Architects: Shalom Baranes/Perkins + Will
Construction Manager: Whiting Turner

The project provides additional underground parking that is necessary as a result of the construction of the Science and Engineering Hall on Square 55 (former home of the above-ground University Parking Garage) and related decentralization of parking, both important components of the 2007 Foggy Bottom Campus Plan. This project also prepares the site for future development of a new infill building to be approved through a future second-stage PUD and, in the interim, will provide an attractive and sustainable improvement to the campus, reducing area stormwater runoff through the use of sustainable streetscape design.

The below-grade parking portion of this project was substantially completed in late 2012 and opened for parking customers in early 2013. Additional work took place in spring 2013 to complete landscaping and finishing as well as the one level of below grade academic programming space.

Community outreach included detailed updates at the quarterly GW Community Advisory Committee meetings (required by the 2007 Foggy Bottom Campus Plan) as well as presentations to the Foggy Bottom Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2A (December 15, 2010; January 16, 2011) and several FRIENDS neighborhood meetings.
