Condominium Living in the Capitol Riverfront District

This 200 unit, 14-story condominium building is the first phase of a new three-phased, mixed-use development located in the emerging Capitol Riverfront District in SE, Washington, DC. The site is located two blocks North of the new Nationals Park stadium. The design concept for the exterior skin of the building is based on the layering of solid and transparent planes. Solid precast panels are peeled back at building corners to reveal floor-to-ceiling glass within living areas. A series of projecting glass bays with balconies are rhythmically organized along the fa├žade, and first floor residential units are designed with semi-private terrace spaces to activate the pedestrian level at the street. Planning efforts for the project involved extensive meetings with the DC Office of Planning and DDOT regarding the streetscape design and proposed projections into public space.
