440 K Street Apartments

So I dropped the ball and didn’t pick up on this earlier as I initially assumed 440 K Street was just Kettler changing the address on their upcoming 450 K Street apartments. But it’s an entirely different new project and is part of a modified plan for Mount Vernon Place. Yay for double the residential and retail development on the block.

From the MVT CID Spring newsletter:

440 K will be the next apartment building to break ground in the Mount Vernon Triangle. With 234 apartments, 440 K will feature two rooftop terraces, a pool, private club room for social occassions, private balconies, and a fitness center. There will also be 9,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

440 K Street will be the fourth building completed in Mount Vernon Place, the two million square foot, mixed-use development of The Wilkes Company and Quadrangle Development Corporation. Designed by Davis Carter Scott, the building is anticipated to be complete by the autumn of 2013.

I can only assume 440 K has the potential to leapfrog 450 K in timeline for groundbreaking because 450 K has all the historical preservation stuff to work through?

From Davis Carter Scott’s website:

440 K Street will be a new Class A apartment development located at Mount Vernon Place in one of Washington, DC’s developing neighborhoods, Mount Vernon Triangle. The development will include 234 apartment units on 14 floors with approximately 9,450 square feet of ground floor retail with K Street frontage. The remainder of the ground floor will be dedicated to residential uses, including the building entrance and lobby which features multiple seating areas and ceiling heights up to 14 feet; property management and leasing offices; and a fitness center for use by the residents.

Of the 234 apartment units, 182 will be one bedroom, one bathroom units and have an average size of 733 square feet. The building will also feature 26 one bedroom with den units at 859 square feet, and 26 two bedroom, two bathroom units at either 959 square feet or 1,135 square feet. The building will feature many amenities including a roof top pool with changing rooms, a landscaped roof top terrace and indoor community room, a 1,200 square foot fitness center on the ground floor, and available wi-fi access in the building common areas. The building will also feature a garden terrace available to residents on the second floor which will offer a peaceful retreat from city living.

    yeah, development and streetscape can happen concurrently. DDOT will do the roads in front of the development and the developer’s of these projects with near term groundbreakings will have to do their sidewalk segments themselves.

    Chairman Brown asked about the 5th & Eye project at the hearing today. The Deputy Mayor said they are moving forward with Donohoe on the project to build the hotel as a matter of right and he expects it to come to the Council soon and that the project will start in early 2013, Let/s hope so.

    Hey, I’m loving this blog so far. As a new resident, I was wondering if you had any recommendations for neighborhood listservs to get on? It’s hard to get all your hyper-local news in one place but it seems like hearing directly from neighbors is a good start.
