In the May/June 2011 print version of Urban Land magazine, a caption for a rendering of Camden Property Trust’s 1345 South Capitol Street project reads that the WDG Architecture-designed apartment building is under construction. While that may not be the case today, it will be by the end of next week. As I tweeted this morning, a Camden representative told me a ground breaking ceremony will take place on Tuesday, May 17th at 11am. This is a couple of months later than expected when news of the revived project first surfaced in January. The 276-unit project will be located across the street from Nationals Park, at the northwest corner of South Capitol and O Street. Its location should allow views into the stadium, the Anacostia River, and the Capitol for upper level residents. Some of the amenities planned for the $88 million apartment building include a rooftop pool and deck, below-grade parking for 250 vehicles, and ground-floor retail. Twelve of the units will be set aside as affordable housing. Leasing should begin around the middle of 2013.
