As 2018 gets underway, UrbanTurf is resuming our updated look at the large-scale residential developments on tap for neighborhoods throughout the area. Late last year, we took a look at the expanding pipeline of development east of the Anacostia River and the still-impressive slate of projects headed to the Southwest Waterfront. Now, we turn our attention to the immediate area straddling South Capitol Street.

This rundown includes residential developments within one block or so of South Capitol Street. In an article next week, we will look at the residential developments on tap for deeper in Navy Yard.

The Garrett at the Collective

The Garrett is the final piece of the Collective, a trio of mixed-use residential buildings developed by WC Smith. Located at 150 Eye St SE (map), The Garrett will deliver 375 apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, atop 14,000 square feet of retail. The interiors of the units will include Mecho shades and barn doors. Amenities at the building will include a full-size basketball court, tennis court, indoor amphitheater, business center, game room and gym with spin room. Residents will also have access to the other amenities in Park Chelsea and The Agora, where a Whole Foods will open later this year. Excavation at The Garrett is currently underway, putting the delivery date in late 2019 or early 2020.

Over at the base of the Southeast Freeway ramp, construction of phase 1 of a two-part development is taking place on the former site of a McDonald's.

After the completion of One Hill South, Related Companies and Ruben Companies filed plans with the Zoning Commission for a sister residential project next door at 950 South Capitol Street SE (map).

1000 South Capitol St SE

Last fall, the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) approved an extension of a planned-unit development on the boards for a parking lot at 1000 South Capitol St SE (map). The approval also included modifications that will create 14,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and service space, additional balconies, and the likelihood of fewer apartments. Instead of 300-360 units, the building is now planned to house as few as 200 units in a 13-story U-shaped building designed by Shalom Baranes. The building, from Lerner Enterprises, also has 225 garage parking spaces. 

37 L Street SE

After purchasing the site at 37 L Street SE (map), DBT Development has teased plans to deliver an 11-story building with 74 condos to the site.

A sister building to Ballpark West, the project will deliver 224 rental apartments and 200 condos, including ten duplexes and up to 8 penthouses with private outdoor space. There will also be 65,000 square feet of retail across two levels, including restaurants with outdoor seating. As designed by ODA Architecture, the cantilevered building has a style characterized by cosmetically-distinctive setbacks and patterned terraces, some of which offer views into Nationals Park.

Designed by Hord Coplan Macht, the project will include a roof deck, pool and views into Nationals Park. The first phase is expected to deliver in spring 2019.
