JPI's "Ballpark" Apartments Begin to Rise

Following the ballpark-induced Southeast Washington development surge, developer JPI is now in the process of constructing two residential apartment buildings at 70 I and 100 I Streets SE, just three blocks from the new Nationals stadium and five blocks from the US Capitol. The 70 I Street and 100 I Street apartment buildings will include 448 and 246 apartment units, respectively.

According to Aaron Liebert, the Area Managing Partner for JPI, the larger 70 I Street will look like a renovated warehouse with intricate brickwork in and outside the building. The smaller 100 I Street, however, will be a modern brick building with stainless steel arched bay windows and MOMA-like Terrazzo floors, glass walls, and stainless steel finishes. Designed by WDG Architecture, both buildings will have a rooftop pool, a conference center, a pub or bar room, an Internet café, and pool tables for residents rather than public retail space.

With stadium and Capitol views and a variety of units including studio, one, and two bedroom with den apartments, Liebert said, “We identified this as an exciting market with a lot of potential on a short and long term scale; people are excited to live here. It is waterfront, riverfront, and across from the National’s stadium. We have a high level of confidence, that this will be the new place to live in the next 10 years in DC.”

There will be three levels of underground-shared parking between the two buildings upon the project’s completion in August 2008, just months after the scheduled opening of the new Nationals stadium.

No ground floor retail? That's a huge mistake.
