Foulger-Pratt has broken ground on Beckert’s Park, a 400,000-square-foot property in Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The development will encompass 325 luxury residential units and 68,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. Construction is slated to take roughly two years.
The 2.8-acre urban infill site at 415 14th St. S.E., between D and E Streets, is situated two block away from the Potomac Avenue Metro Station. The project’s name originates from Washington Brewery, the former beer garden and amusement park once occupying the property, owned by George and Theresa Beckert in the 19th century. Foulger-Pratt acquired the site in 2016 from Albertsons Cos., Safeway’s parent company.
The five-story structure will comprise 8,000 square feet of neighborhood retail and a 60,000-square-foot Safeway store. The Class A community will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom units, as well as a penthouses with private terraces. Common-area amenities will include:
- club room
- outdoor swimming pool
- fitness center
- shared workspace business center
- bike storage
- 6,000-square-foot multi-media sports court
- below-grade parking
Back in November, Foulger-Pratt was behind two of the winning projects at the 2017 MHN Excellence Awards. Both Press House and Eckington Park developments in D.C. received Silver acknowledgements.
