The latest apartment development planned for DC's Navy Yard neighborhood comes with an interesting amenity. 

UrbanTurf has learned that developer WC Smith has filed plans with the city for a new 13-story, 352-unit apartment building at 1 K Street SW (map). The building, designed by WDG Architecture, will front South Capitol Street and sit a few blocks north of Nationals Park. The K Street site is just south of the Capitol Skyline hotel, and is currently vacant except for a handful of parking spaces and an abandoned pool.

The top and bottom of the new project will be devoted to building amenity spaces. The penthouse level will include outdoor terraces and lounge areas, while the western portion of the roof will have a dog park and play area. A swimming pool and pool deck will be located on the upper penthouse level. 

A two-story jewel box lobby on South Capitol Street will open to a pair of courtyards, as well as amenity space that will feature coworking areas, a lounge, a fitness area, and an amenity that UrbanTurf hasn't seen before: a podcast/piano studio. 

The development will go through the design review process with DC's Zoning Commission in the coming months.
