1625 Eckington – DC Condo Building Is In the Thick Of Mixed-Use Development

Jan. 19, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. EST

The streetscape is changing rapidly in part of Northeast Washington’s NoMa neighborhood as redevelopment transforms more than three acres into a mixed-use residential and retail destination. Eckington Yards will have a 12-story, 179-unit condominium building — 1625 Eckington at Quincy Lane — two rental apartment buildings and a structure containing ­townhouse-style condos.
The 179-unit condo building is at ­Eckington Place and Quincy Lane NE, a new street that is an extension of Quincy Place. The lane runs east of Eckington Place between the four new buildings to create a retail corridor open to pedestrians and slow-moving vehicular traffic.
“This is a ‘woonerf-style street,’ ” said Chris Masters, executive vice president of McWilliams Ballard, which is handling sales. “It’s common in Europe and is called a ‘living street.’ ”The first two floors of 1625 Eckington will be occupied by shops and restaurants. The building’s residential units will occupy the third to 12th floors. Base prices for the condos range from $359,900 to $1,299,900. About 20 percent have been sold. A furnished model unit is on view at 1625 Eckington. And the McWilliams Ballard sales gallery, at 1485 Ninth St. NW, has a scale model of the entire development and a mock-up of a kitchen and another of a bathroom.
Boxes checked: Rachel Sinderbrand and Wesley Williamson have lived in NoMa for a few years. “When we started looking to buy, we knew we wanted to stay in walking distance of where we are now,” Williamson said. But they had a growing list of prospects before they saw an ad for 1625 Eckington.
They went to the sales gallery and chose a seventh-floor unit after studying floor plans and researching the developer. “It was very much a trusting situation for us,” Williamson said.
On a hard-hat tour of the unfinished unit, they “got a sense of the space and view,” Sinderbrand said. “We liked the light, especially compared to our home now, which has just one smallish window. And there’s a terrace. It was important to have some outdoor space.”
She added: “It checked all the boxes. Hopefully, we can move in the spring.” Masters confirmed that the unit should be ready to occupy in the spring.
Eckington Yards is in a vibrant, up-and-coming section of D.C. The building at 1625 Eckington has a “warm, residential aesthetic [that] blends mid-century, classic modernist design with industrial touches, evoking the heyday of Eckington’s industrial past,” said Rhea Vaflor, associate principal and lifestyle director at Hickok Cole, the interior designer.

“When residents want to get away without going too far from home, the rooftop [clubroom] features a see-through fireplace with a picture-perfect view of the Capitol, downtown D.C., the Washington Monument and National Cathedral,” she added.The building’s amenities include a rooftop pool, a fitness center, a cafe with a hosting kitchen for entertaining, a green roof and rooftop grilling station. The building lobby will have a full-time concierge.

Eric Colbert & Associates is the architecture firm.

Nearby: Alethia Tanner Park, 2½ acres and open since June, is a neighborhood highlight, with gardens, grass, a playground, a dog park and a connection to the Metropolitan Branch Trail. The park is named for Maryland native Alethia Tanner, who was born enslaved and bought her freedom and the freedom of some relatives in 1810. She promoted education for D.C.’s Black children.

Gallaudet University’s grounds are an inviting place to walk. Union Market weathers the pandemic as a venue for takeout food, with tables outside. The market also has shops such as District Cutlery, Harvey’s Market and Red Apron Butchery. There is a Whole Foods Market on H Street and a Trader Joe’s on Florida Avenue.
Schools: Langley Elementary, McKinley Middle, Dunbar High.
Transit: The closest Metro station, NoMa-Gallaudet U on the Red Line, is within easy walking distance and is one stop from Union Station. It has 10 bike racks. Eckington Yards is near New York and Florida avenues and North Capitol Street. It is steps away from a streetcar line that traverses H Street. Resident-only street parking is prevalent.

Developer: JBG Smith

Avidian nearing completion in Navy Yard neighborhood

By Audrey Hoffer | May 5, 2020 at 7:30 a.m. EDT

Construction workers in lime vests, thick-soled work boots, hard hats and face masks were busy one day last month on all 14 floors of Avidian, a 171-unit condominium building in the Navy Yard neighborhood of Southeast Washington. Stretching from South Capitol Street to Van Street SE, the red and gray brick building is nearing completion, with move-ins expected to begin in a couple of months.

Christopher Hopkins-Gillispie, one of the first buyers, purchased a one-bedroom unit with a den that could become a guest room or an office.

“The area has a lot going on,” said Hopkins-Gillispie, who mentioned the Nationals Park baseball stadium and the Wharf, which offers shopping, dining and recreation on the Southwest Waterfront, as well as Navy Yard’s “restaurants, breweries, ice cream shops, wine bars, and retail.”

“I found the property online and was literally stalking it for a year as I watched it go up,” Hopkins-Gillispie said. He said he went to the opening and met with a sales representative the next day. “I found the unit I wanted, and the rest is history.

Chelsea McGrath and Pedro Rubio bought a sixth-floor unit facing South Capitol Street. The Washington Monument is in view. Rubio looked at design plans and took virtual and in-person tours. McGrath walked around the unfinished building. “Even though I saw only the bones of the structure, I felt like I could put the pictures together,” McGrath said. “We really liked it.” Reagan, their Mini Bernedoodle, will join them. Cassandra Vangellow, who has been living nearby for a few years, said she is looking forward to moving into her “little tucked-away” second-floor unit. “Navy Yard is the best of both worlds. I feel like I’m in a city but also in a small neighborhood. It definitely has a young vibe and a young professional component,” she said.

‘Smart use of space’: A one-bedroom model unit, 410 is a compact 645 square feet. The kitchen lines a section of one wall opposite the bedroom, which has a barn-style sliding door and a horizontal window high on one wall. The unit has two spacious closets. A stacked washer and dryer are behind a closet door in the bathroom.

Another model unit, 618, is 1,048 square feet and has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a balcony. Kitchen appliances are along a wall facing the living-dining area. The balcony is reached through the larger bedroom, and a window in the smaller bedroom looks out onto it. “Avidian is made for people interested in the smart use of space,” Hopkins-Gillispie said. “It’s very European-like in the design.” The condos are presented in two color palettes. New Traditionalist has white cabinetry with black handles in the kitchen and gray bathrooms with black accents. Organic Modernist has gray-brown kitchen and bathroom cabinets with chromium fixtures.The Gensler architectural firm, designed the building. McWilliams Ballard is handling sales.

Amenities: Amenities include lounge seating, a cafe, billiards and a fireplace on the lobby level. The rooftop has a pool, a sun deck, a lounge, a fire pit, grill and dining tables. The building also has a fitness center, Zen garden, yoga deck, pet spa, dog play area, and bicycle and personal storage space.
