SK+I News: Construction Continues in DC
Amidst the COVID-19 commotion, construction continues at a normal pace for SK+I. We have been working hard (and safely) with our clients and contractors to ensure that our projects deliver on time and remain of the highest quality. Let’s take a look at several of our projects making way in Washington, D.C., with some set to deliver this summer!
The Maren, Phase II (Dock 79 was Phase I) of a six-acre, four-building Riverfront development project by MRP Realty is scheduled to deliver by early June 2020. The 13-story, multifamily, mixed-use tower is located within half a mile of the Metro, several Capital Bike Share locations, and provides ample bike storage for its residents.
THE GARRETT AT THE COLLECTIVE
Another project delivering this summer is The Garrett at The Collective. The Garrett is the third and final phase of WC Smith’s Collective development, which includes Park Chelsea and Agora. The 13-story, 375-unit building is designed to look like two distinctively different buildings; its design is robust with a post-industrial loft look showcasing a unique brick pattern and detailing inspired by the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Sportsplex-like amenities such as a basketball court, tennis courts, racquetball court, and much more will be available to residents.
OTHER DC PROJECTS UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Washington Gateway Phase II is a new apartment development at 202 Florida Avenue Northeast, Washington. Its first phase, Elevation at Washington Gateway, was completed in 2014 and comprised of 350,000 square feet of residential, 5,000 square feet of retail and 400 apartments. Phase II has a total of 387 units and 340,000 residential square feet. Its location is sought after as it is conveniently located one block away from the Metro and offers direct access to the Metropolitan Branch Trail.
41 L Street, known as the Navy Yard chiller site, is located in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood in Southeast, D.C. This mixed-use development is an 11-story, 161-unit building with 124,240 square feet of residential, 3,950 square feet of ground floor retail. Amenities include penthouse level community rooms and terraces. The development remains the site of WMATA’s chiller equipment and associated office space.
Morse Street is LCOR’s second residential building being developed in the Union Market neighborhood. The building design allows for successful retail, a more walkable community, and its industrial look will blend with the neighborhood. The development also incorporates a historical landmark, The Little Tavern, which will be restored and integrated into the building’s retail portion.
Bryant Street is a two-phased project that transforms an existing shopping center adjacent to the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station. It is a massive development set to bring over 1,400 units, 250,000 SF of retail (including a nine-screen Alamo Drafthouse Cinema) to the heart of Washington, D.C.
Reed Street is nine-story, 353-unit multifamily development in the Brookland neighborhood being developed by Trammell Crow Company/High Street Residential. Reed Street boasts 15,300 square feet of residential amenity split between three floors that includes a gym, co-working space, a second floor enclosed courtyard and rooftop club room, terrace and pool that takes advantage of the great views south towards to the Capitol. The development is just right across the metro tracks from our Bryant Street project.
