The Hickok Cole-designed building has 325 rental apartments and rooftop amenities that include an outdoor theater, a pool, a hot tub, and a vantage from left center field onto the infield of Nats Park.

1221 Van, which residents began moving into earlier this year, is a 13-story apartment building has 291 units and a roof deck with stadium-style seating facing left field of the Park. Also, certain tenants in south-facing apartments above the sixth floor can see into the ballpark from their units. Rooftop amenities in the Hariri Pontarini-designed building also include an infinity pool, bocce court, cabanas and grills.

Next door at 1221 Half Street SE (map) on the former site of the Half Street Fairgrounds, the West Half building is currently under construction. There will be a total of 224 rental apartments and 200 condos, including ten duplexes and up to 8 penthouses with private outdoor space. Designed by ODA Architecture, the condo side of the building will have a dramatically stepped design that creates a pattern of staggered terraces intended to offer several residents private views into the ballpark. The building will also offer rooftop views. Leasing will start this summer in preparation for anticipated delivery in 2019.

Jair Lynch and MacFarlane Partners are also working on a two-phase, 460,000 square-foot mixed-use development at 1250 Half Street SE (map). The first phase is expected to deliver a 10-story building with 310 apartments atop a Punch Bowl Social and other retail this summer. The second phase will deliver a 130-unit condominium building with 5,000 square feet of retail fronting N Street in spring of 2019. The project is designed by Hord Coplan Macht and will include two roof decks with pool and views into left field, infield and home plate; 20 percent of the units will also enjoy similar views into the Park.
