The property is located one block from the Metro on Georgia Avenue in the Petworth Neighborhood of Northwest Washington, DC. The site is approximately 31,000 SF and falls a full story from Georgia Avenue to the alley at the rear.
The program calls for mixed uses to include neighborhood oriented retail at the ground floor, 130 mixed income apartment units above and underground parking. The project is part of a pilot program for the LEED ND (Neighborhood Design) certification.
The five-story plus loft residential building which features a central court yard and a green roof, sits on top of the 28,000 SF retail space to be occupied by a community health clinic. Parking for both uses is provided in three levels underground accessed from the alley. The single loaded corridor to the south anticipates a future Phase 2. The front facade features a series of glazed cantilevered bays and a green screen. The building achieves a mix of uses and income to help achieve the LEED ND certification.
