A rendering of The Fitzgerald's patio and yard.
The Fitzgerald on 16th Street (map) is re-opening its doors after a complete renovation. The boutique apartment building that abutts Rock Creek Park was originally built in the 1920s, and when overhauling the apartment interiors with modern amenities, CAS Riegler Companies and Snead Construction Group ran with the roaring ‘20s theme, outfitting common areas with Gatsby-esque vintage-modern décor.
The Fitzgerald includes 35 studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms, all with brand new fixtures and appliances. The apartments, now managed by boutique company Northwest Property Management, have been reworked into large, open floor plans. The only thing that remains of the century-old apartment interiors are polished hardwood floors. An open house for The Fitzgerald will be held on March 15th between 10am and 2pm. Apartment tours are now available by appointment only. For more information, visit the property online here.

The Fitzgerald also has the type of outdoor areas and green spaces that most DC residents can only wish for, including private balconies with select apartments, a large private yard and dog run (dogs and cats are welcome at The Fitzgerald), and a communal patio with a fire pit and grill. Proximity to Rock Creek Park gives residents easy access to running and biking trails. A bicycle storage room was built into the property, and limited parking spaces are available.

CAS Riegler and Snead are beginning renovations on a second building at The Fitzgerald, scheduled for completion in August. It will include 15 apartments as well as a gym that will serve residents at both buildings.
The Fitzgerald is walking distance to the Georgia Avenue/Petworth and Columbia Heights Metro stations, and the bus lines of 16th Street run right by the project from Silver Spring to downtown DC. It is also in close proximity to new neighborhood restaurants and bars, including Mothership, The Pinch and Chez Billy.
