Inside (And Above) The New 14-Story Apartment Building Rising Near The National Mall

The section of Southwest D.C. just south of the National Mall is largely home to office buildings, museums and hotels, but residents will soon be able to live in a new 14-story apartment building overlooking the District’s monumental core.

Republic Properties broke ground in June 2017 on a $220M, 373-unit apartment project at 1331 Maryland Ave. SW. The developer received $170M in construction financing from CapitalSource and Parse Capital. The building, part of The Portals complex, will be branded as 1331 and will begin leasing next spring.Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects with WDG Architecture serving as the architect of record and Balfour Beatty as the general contractor, the 14-story apartment building is currently under construction. Twelve of its floors have been built and it will top out in the next month. Bisnow took an exclusive tour of the project, and climbed to the top of the 225-foot-tall construction crane to capture the views of the surrounding area.

A subterranean museum below architect Eero Saarinen’s iconic arch in St Louis has been renovated and expanded by three architecture firms, as part of an effort to rejuvenate the area around the monument.

Formerly known as The Museum of Westward Expansion, the new Gateway Arch Museum was led by New York firms Cooper Robertson and James Carpenter Design Associates, with locally based Trivers Associates.

It encompassed the gut renovation of 105,800-square-foot (9,829-square-metre) existing building, alongside a 47,000-square-foot (4,366 square-metre) addition.
