The Big Residential Developments on the Boards for Capitol Hill

by Nena Perry-Brown

After catching up with the development headed to Southwest DC over the past two weeks, now UrbanTurf is turning toward Capitol Hill. Today, we will run down the residential developments that are planned for the Hill on the west side of 12th Street SE. Next week, we will cover the developments coming east of 12th Street SE.

In case you missed them, here are other neighborhoods we have covered thus far:

The Big Residential Developments on the Boards for Capitol Hill: Figure 1

300 8th Street NE

After securing approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) last July, construction on a condominium development at 300 8th Street NE (map) is expected to begin as early as this summer after the tenant on-site vacates the premises. Community Three Development plans to construct a four-story building with penthouse delivering 42 condos, roughly 28 of which will be two-bedrooms. Torti Gallas is the architect on the project.

The units are expected to deliver in early 2019 and will range in price from the low $500,000s to over $1 million. Four or five condos will be inclusionary zoning; a below-grade level will deliver 18 parking spaces and at least 14 bicycle spaces.

Hine School Redevelopment

Eastbanc and Stanton are nearing completion of the Hine Junior High School redevelopment at 700 Pennsylvania Avenue SE (map). The multi-building project, with 150,000 square feet of office space, 60,000 square feet of retail (including a Trader Joe’s), and 162 mixed-income residential units across three buildings, will begin delivering this summer. The development will also reopen the grid at C Street and include a total of 320 below-grade parking spaces.

816-820 Potomac Avenue SE

While the 16,000 square-foot site at 816-820 Potomac Avenue SE (map) is closer to Barracks Row than Capitol Hill, it is near enough to be included in the rundown. Murillo Malnati Group and PGN Architects plan to construct 75 apartments above retail with 46 parking spaces.

Kipling House

Madison Investments will deliver the Kipling House condos this fall, bringing 49 luxury units to 900 11th Street SE (map). The unit mix will include one- and two-bedroom plus dens; prices will range from the $300,000s-$800,000s. Amenities will include a roof deck and interior courtyard; there will also be 26 bicycle spaces in addition to 23 below-grade and seven surface parking spaces.

1101 Penn

The Perseus Realty-led development team broke ground at 1101-1117 Pennsylvania Avenue SE (map) last month, starting work on a mixed-use project that will lead to the eventual return of the Frager’s hardware store to its former location. The building will deliver 34 one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums atop the new Frager’s and up to two additional retailers. Westbrook Partners and Javelin 19 Investments are also partners on the Hickok Cole Architects-designed development, which is expected to deliver in early 2019.

Frager’s Redevelopment

At the other end of the block at 1123-1129 Pennsylvania Avenue SE (map), PGN Architects has designed a mixed-use development with 27-32 residential units atop 5,000 square feet of retail. The development will likely be presented to the HPRB this summer.

Correction: The rendering for the Potomac Avenue development has been updated to the most recent design.
