A little more than a month after representatives from Waterfront Associates gave an update on their planned residential building at Waterfront Station, the Washington Business Journal reports that a sheeting and shoring permit has been granted for 1001 4th Street. Construction fencing has not gone up yet, but with permits now in hand, fencing should be up soon; however, it is doubtful that actual construction will begin before the New Year since it's now only 10 days before the end of the year. 1001 4th Street was designed by Perkins Eastman and is planned as an 11-story, 365-unit rental apartment building with 5,000 square feet of ground floor retail along with multi-story residential units facing the private drive at the north end of the site and Makemie Place. It will take about 22 months to build the project, which means that the building should be complete around the fourth quarter of 2016. After this building, there is one more residential parcel planned at Waterfront Station, which is the District-owned parcel across the street. Sky House East began leasing early this year and the finishing touches are being placed on Sky House West. The two vacant parcels on the south side of Waterfront Station are slated to be office buildings, but there is no timetable on when those will be built.
