Grand Openings Galore!

We’ve had a great head start to the summer celebrating the grand openings of three of our projects: Modera Central (Orlando, FL), Novel South Capital (Navy Yard, DC), and Altaire (Pentagon City, VA).


Located between Central Boulevard and Rosalind Avenue, the 22-story, 1.25-acre property— Modera Central—takes advantage of a prime, walkable location in the epicenter of South Eola and the Central Business District. Modera Central is comprised of 350 high-rise homes sitting atop six levels of structured parking and approximately 12,750 square feet of ground floor retail. Atop the six-story, above-ground parking garage sits an amenity deck with a rooftop pool and outdoor spaces with spectacular views of Lake Eola. Additionally, the older University Club of Orlando facilities—which had made the site its home since 1960—was demolished, reimagined, and incorporated as part of the sleek new high-rise in downtown Central Orlando. At the ground level, the project provides a mix of uses including an exclusive entrance to the University Club on Central and a large retail space along Rosalind and Pine. Additionally, the site is commuter-friendly with a SunRail station about a seven-minute walk from the project. The Orlando Farmers Market is in walking distance from the community, while groceries are only a five-minute drive away.


Located between Capitol Hill, Southwest, and The Yards, Novel South Capitol is a transit-oriented community that consists of two, modern, 13-story towers that house 539 apartments and a shared below-grade parking structure. The residential complex sits on the former site of a McDonald’s and is within walking distance from both the Navy Yard Metro station and the Washington Nationals baseball park. Brick, metal panels, and glass combined to create a sophisticated, urban feel. The extensive use of glass, in addition to the glass balconies at both corners, provide expansive city views. Light-filled studio, 1 and 2-bedroom den units offer open, flexible floor plans and feature floor-to-ceiling windows. Ground-floor will have stoops and walk out directly onto the street creating a more contemporary, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.


Bordering Crystal City and Pentagon City, The Altaire—referencing the double star in the constellation, Aquila—will offer 450 condominium homes to the growing region. The residential complex sits on the former site of a vacant, 1960-era office building—known locally as the “Paper Clip” building—and consists of two modern, 17-story residential towers, with a shared three-story base, constructed over an existing underground parking garage. Both towers share a three-story main lobby that is accessed from an intimate pedestrian and bicycle promenade which provides public outdoor green space and allows for resident drop of and connects residents to the larger community. Additionally, the new community is within walking distance from both the Crystal City and Pentagon City Metro stations and situated to benefit from the extension of the Metroway enhanced bus service.

Brick, metal panels, exposed concrete and glass are combined to create a contemporary, urban feel. Light-filled studio, one,- two-, and three-bedroom units offer open, flexible floor plans and feature floor-to-ceiling windows. The distinctive amenity package includes roof-top terraces, an exercise room, a club room, and shared courtyard. The towers are separated to create an expansive courtyard that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor amenity spaces. Amenity spaces are designed to create both private areas for relaxation and gathering spaces for entertaining and connecting with other residents.

Street-level entrances for first floor residences enhance the diverse, vibrant, activity and add to the enhanced streetscapes along Army Navy Drive, 11th Street South, and South Eads Streets.

The Altaire will serve as beacon of iconic architecture at the gateway of Crystal City, Arlington, and the surrounding areas. The slender, dynamic towers open to offer residents sweeping views of both Virginia and downtown Washington, DC.
