Torti Gallas was proud to celebrate the recent opening of Park Van Ness in Washington, DC. Developed by Saul Centers, the new 271-unit apartment building has revitalized a bleak portion of Washington, DC’s Connecticut Avenue, replacing a midgrade commercial building with a vibrant mixed use development.

The building massing has been sculpted to reveal a view from the new landscaped courtyard out to Rock Creek Park behind the building. The considerable change in grade from the street level down to the park allows for 11 stories of prime view residential units on the back while maintaining a sensitive 6 stories of height at Connecticut Avenue.

Park Van Ness includes 10,000 square feet of street-level retail, below grade structured parking for 220 cars, and amenities such as a community room, landscaped courtyards, a fitness room and a rooftop pool and deck.

The combination of quality design and incredible views make Park Van Ness one of Washington, DC’s best addresses.
