Burkey Construction was the general contractor for the construction of the GoggleWorks Apartments located at 135 Washington Street in downtown Reading.
The 59-unit apartment building is constructed using the Tradeready joist system and prefabricated metal stud framed wall panels. The structure is built over a conventional steel framed ground-level parking garage with a lower level entrance lobby. The complex features secure parking, an outdoor raised deck for entertaining, and a community room with exercise equipment.
Each luxury apartment is heated and cooled with individual energy efficient units, floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and bedrooms, hardwood floors throughout the kitchen and living room, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and washers and dryers. Each of the 44 two-bedroom apartments has two bathrooms and is 1,316 square feet. The remaining 15 one-bedroom apartments are 1,034 square feet.
