Yet More NoMa Residents


Just a few days after NoMa announced its first new housing in a century, the downtown DC neighborhood will get yet another bump in residents with the opening of The Loree Grand on Tuesday. The Loree Grand at Union Place is the first phase of the Cohen Companies planned Union Place development, which is intended to deliver more than 700 new apartments, 9,000 s.f. of retail, a daycare center, and central courtyard open to the public.

The Loree Grand, named after local resident Loree Murray who fought local gangs and drug-dealers and had her home firebombed as a thank-you, is the only portion of Union Place to begin construction so far. The opening of the apartment building brings 212 new rental units to 250 K St., NE, with 173 parking spaces in two levels below the 10-story frame. The building, designed by GTM Architects and built by ADC Builders, began construction in July 2007. The bulk of the 212 units are variations on 1-bedroom apartments with the remaining 30 units in various 2-bedroom configurations. The first two floors attempt to replicate traditional Washington DC row house design, with entrances both on the street and from the interior. Cohen did not pursue LEED certification on the building, but the building does support a green roof.

Two weeks ago the Loree Grand began taking initial applications from artists for 30 artist-designed apartments, thanks to a partnership with the Cultural Development Corporation.

Phase II of Union Place is currently on hold. Cohen also built the Velocity condos in the Capitol Riverfront (ballpark) neighborhood, and is exploring another mixed-use project at 14th and Virginia Avenue, SE.
