Apartments Just a Fly Ball Away


With construction of the new Nationals ballpark moving full speed ahead in Southeast along South Capitol Street, a number of new apartment buildings within spitting distance of the field have recently been announced. First up is Camden Property Trust's 1325 Capitol SW project (pictured), located right across the street from the National's stadium between N and O Streets. The $99 million, 210,000-sf apartment project will be nine stories tall and contain 244 units, mostly one bedrooms with an average apartment size of 860 sf. Construction is expected to start Summer 2007. Camden (the owner) has yet to select a developer. Next up are two apartment projects from residential developer JPI: 70 and 100 I Street, a $210 million project with two towers containing nearly 700 units (completion is scheduled for late 2008); and 901 New Jersey Avenue, a $75 million, 238-unit apartment building set for the block now housing the Nexus Gold Club, a "gentlemen's" club (so, uh, I was told...). 901 New Jersey is set to being construction in 2007 with a late 2008 completion date. Finally, there is Faison's planned residential tower at 1st and L Streets SE. This will be a 14-story, 266-unit tower. Construction started last month, and the tower is expected to be done in late 2008. Make sure to glance to your left when driving down South Capitol – you can tell your kids you remember it when it was all empty lots and run-down warehouses....

Sales have not yet begun at the Faison project. No word yet on when that will start.
