JPI’s 909 New Jersey Avenue SE Project

Adding to their share of the Southeast ballpark development, developer JPI is planning a 14,000 s.f., 13-story residential and retail project at 909 New Jersey Avenue SE. Just blocks from the company’s 70 and 100 I Street apartment buildings, the new 247-unit tower, designed by the Preston Partnerships, will include an arched class turret that will be up-lit at night creating a light in the sky to be seen by crowds as they exit the nearby Navy Yard metro station.

According to Aaron Liebert, the Area Managing Partner for JPI, “As you exit the metro, you will be able to see the Capitol and the dramatic building.” The interior will feature a “transitional concept” mixing modern finishes and design with warm colors and furnishings.

The project, which will break ground in May, will include 6,000 s.f.ground floor retail and restaurants, and is slated for completion in Summer 2009.

A question for the good folks at DC Mud (and anyone else familiar with this area)...I was considering buying something in the new baseball park area, but can't figure out if it's a good idea of not....will the neighborhood be nice and filled in over the next few years?? or will it still be unsafe?

When will we start to hear something about sales in the new ballpark area?

There are two projects in the ballpark already selling (Onyx and Capitol Hill Tower), and more on the way (see and search for stadium). And yes, it should be a great neighborhood if the promise is even partially fulfilled - near the water, Metro and with great entertainment. At least that's what we hope.

hey anon. 1, what makes it unsafe right now? there are areas in the district that are "unsafe", but the area around the stadium isn't "unsafe", it's empty. i wonder if your hopes for "safety" can ever be fulfilled. it's not going to be a peaceful, quiet suburban neighborhood.
