We are very happy to officially announce that Capital Pixel has been selected as a part of a consultant team that will be studying Washington, DC’s building heights. In a quote taken from Mayor Gray in his press release:
“I am excited to have these experienced and highly regarded experts provide their knowledge and experience to help us take this once-in-a-century
opportunity to strategically examine how we can preserve this city’s unique and iconic skyline while exploring how to ensure the Height Act
continues to meet federal and District interests,” said Mayor Gray.
Capital Pixel is excited to be working with Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) one of the leading architecture, interior design, engineering, and urban-planning firms in the world, CyberCity 3D, Inc., a leader in 3D geospatial building generation, Digital Design and Imaging Service Inc., which will provide aerial imaging and viewshed analysis, and AMT, LLC Consulting Engineers and Land Surveyors.
