The second phase of Capitol Park Tower apartments now has a name…it will be called The Kiley on 4th. The name pays homage to Dan Kiley, the landscape architect that designed Capitol Park and other Southwest landmarks, such as Benjamin Banneker Park. Since Capitol Park Tower was deemed historic by the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB), the project needed to seek approval from the Board. After a lot of back-and-forth with HPRB, the 330-unit project gained approval in early 2016. Some original elements from Dan Kiley’s design will remain, such as the large pool on the east side of Capitol Park Tower. Other components will be reimagined, such as the concrete canopies used to cover the parking garage will be repurposed as covered walkways between the existing building and the addition. New landscaping between the addition and Capitol Park Tower will be designed to more closely resemble Kiley’s original design. In addition, the surface parking located on G Street will be replaced with landscaping.
Construction on The Kiley is expected to get started in 2017 with completion in 2019.
