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.
The distinctive amenity package includes roof-top terraces completed with a cocktail bar, lounge area with outdoor screening area, swimming pool, dining, and a shared co-working space that take advantage of the expansive views of the Capitol Building. ABC Pony, an integrated on-site, all-day café/eatery serves a menu by, James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year nominee, Erik Bruner-Yang. No moment is lost in creating points of connection with neighbors. Even the mail room—arguably one of the most visited amenity spaces—is carefully designed with a large, rustic oak table at its center that is flanked with plenty of plush seating. A warm color palette, playful lighting, natural views, and an high-definition TV mounted to the wall transforms the old concept of a mailroom into a modern-day lounge area. Novel South Capitol’s amenity spaces were designed to create both private areas for relaxation and gathering spaces for entertaining and connecting with other residents and visitors.
