THIS PROJECT

This adaptive-reuse project converted the two 14-story Park Center office buildings and connecting lobby into 435 residential apartment units. The residential units consist of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments with 128 prefabricated balconies and views of the Washington, DC skyline.

  • 3,000 SF 24-hour fitness center
  • Clubroom with kitchen, dining area, televisions and fireplace
  • Social lounge with interactive multi-sport game simulator
  • Co-working areas
  • Plant-filled conservatory for gatherings, work and community organizations
