A 124-unit building on North Capitol Street that will provide micro studio apartments to disabled veterans is under construction and will deliver in late 2015, UrbanTurf has learned.
North Capitol Commons, located at 1005 North Capitol Street NW (map), is being constructed by SIGAL Construction and was designed by Sorg Architects. The developer is Be The Change Development Corporation.
The 14-story building will consist of 12 floors of micro studio rentals, ranging in size from 330 to 405 square feet, that will sit over office and retail space on the first two levels. In addition to a lounge and fitness center, the building will also have conference space and social services for residents.
Sorg Architects describes the design of the building as follows:
The design of North Capitol Commons engages its historic context with a slim, modulated massing that takes advantage of views of the U.S. Capitol and Washington’s monuments to the north and south and also provides outdoor terraces and increased daylighting to the interior of units. The extensive use of glazing throughout maximizes natural light in common corridors, enlivening interior spaces and connecting residents to the larger urban context.
