Torti Gallas designed this new mixed-use, transit-oriented development above the Georgia Avenue/ Petworth Metro Station along Georgia Avenue in Washington, DC. Advertised and awarded through the District of Columbia’s Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, the project provides a vibrant new neighborhood center with ample street-front retail and five levels of residential apartments above.
The development team was led by Donatelli & Klein, Inc., the developers for The Ellington Apartments at 13th & U Streets and two large mixed-use projects at 14th and Irving Streets, NW in Columbia Heights, all designed by Torti Gallas.
The new development contains apartments above retail space, with additional fee simple townhouse units along 9th Street, NW. A portion of the apartments are set aside for affordable housing (30% to 60% of the area median income). This is the first new apartment units built along Georgia Avenue in decades, that has now become a catalyst for revitalization of the area.
