The Moxy Hotel is a seven-story, 163-room development located in St. Petersburg’s vibrant EDGE District. The hotel includes a 7,000 SF outdoor garden space, retail and co-working space, and a rooftop pool, bar, and lounge. Langan conducted Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments to identify environmental conditions related to the property’s previous use and proximity to a historic railroad. We also performed a geotechnical investigation and provided foundation recommendations based on our findings. Our recommendations included a two-phase ground improvement approach to support the structure on a shallow foundation system, which resulted in substantial cost savings for the client.
