Construction Underway at Portals Apartments


Construction is underway on 1399 Maryland Avenue, the first new residential building north of the Southwest freeway and south of the National Mall since urban renewal. Originally planned as an office building at The Portals, Republic Properties decided to change course and build multifamily instead. The current design by Robert A.M. Stern Architects is for a 373-unit rental apartment building. Many of the units will have sweeping views of the Tidal Basin and the building will be prominent for drivers entering the city on the 14th Street Bridge. Delivery is scheduled for 2019.

This is pretty exciting-- thank you for the update.

Do you have any information about Douglas Development's plans for the Cotton Annex building?

I have no update on that project.

Ben, don't get your hopes up. Douglas Development is not known for either (a) letting on what it's doing or (b) approaching its redevelopment plans with ANY sense of urgency whatsoever.
