The Lockwood Apartments

Washington, DC

The Lockwood Apartments—a four-story, 145-unit boutique apartment community on a one acre site that formerly housed a municipal truck depot and auto repair center—presents an extremely rare opportunity to develop an institutional-scale residential project in the heart of Capitol Hill. Just 1.5 blocks from the Potomac Avenue Metro station, the project is named after Belva Lockwood, an iconic late 19th century suffragist. The apartment community retains one existing row house on-site to provide senior day services via a non-profit organization.

The building picks up the unique architectural vernacular of the Capitol Heights neighborhood with large, warehouse-inspired windows and deep, red masonry, and gray metal panels. The design team widened the existing alley and set it back from the neighboring houses to provide abundant green space. With health and wellness in mind, all the walk-out basement level apartments open towards a central courtyard and all penthouse apartments connect to a rooftop terrace. The Lockwood presents an extremely rare opportunity to develop an institutional-scale residential project in the heart of Capitol Hill.
