Location: Washington, DC
Client: Forest City Enterprises
This 191-unit multi-family residential project near the historic Washington D.C. Navy Yard, was designed for Forest City Realty Trust. The bold and simple massing of the nearly 200,000 square foot concrete frame building features large expanses of glass, perforated exterior shading and rooftop clerestories to maximize natural day lighting. Amenities include a two story social lounge and landscaped courtyard as well as a rooftop garden with views of the Anacostia River. Once the home of the industrial Washington Navy Yard, this area south of the U.S. Capitol, has been reborn as a vibrant neighborhood with a variety of trendy restaurants, riverfront parks, and sporting venues including Nationals Park, home to the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team.
