Arlington, VA – FD Stonewater announced that it has been awarded the exclusive rights to negotiate a 30-year lease contract with the State of Maine Bureau of General Services (BGS) for the purchase and redevelopment of the Maine DOT 109 Capitol Street in Augusta, ME. The parcel consists of 9.2± acres with eight connecting buildings and other out-buildings situated two blocks from the State Capitol. The existing structures on site would be demolished to make way for an approximate 89,000-square foot facility for the Department of Health & Human Services. Construction is estimated to commence in mid-2017. The design team is comprised of HGA Architects based in Alexandria, VA and Maine-based Mark Mueller Architects. The general contractor is Landry/French.
