NoMa's newest apartments open Thursday as developers and city officials gather for a photo op to inaugurate one of Washington DC's largest apartment buildings. "Trilogy" - 3 buildings designed by the Preston Partnership and formerly known as NoMa West - will add 603 rental units to the border between NoMa and Eckington at 151 Q Street, NE.
The first of the three buildings - Cirq, Linq, and Esqe - is now open, with the other two opening within the next few months. Designed by developer Mill Creek Residential Trust to appeal to nearly any taste and architectural preference, each of the three buildings sports several motifs, a "highly differentiated architectural style," say its developers, that will span the centuries, architecturally speaking, with "traditional and contemporary" in Cirq, "warehouse, contemporary and art deco" in Linq, and finishing with the "highly contemporary" Esqe when it completes in March.
The project broke ground in March of 2011, but has been in the works far longer, at least since the team of CSX (as owner) and Fairfield Residential (as developer) plotted a 2006 groundbreaking for the residences. The torch then passed to Trammell Crow Residential, and finally to the current team, who can finally spike the ball at tomorrow's ceremony. Mill Creek is also working on an even larger project at the Dunn Loring Metro station.
