3525 16th ST, NW – The Fitzgerald, is an extensive renovation of an existing apartment building directly across the street from Rock Creek Park, in the Columbia Heights neighborhood. The building was purchased as a sparsely occupied 23 unit apartment building, consisting of a mix of 1,2 and 3 bedroom units and an unfinished basement that housed a boiler and other antiquated Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Systems. Since acquisition, the basement has been made use of by adding units, and the larger inefficient units on the above grade floors have been re-demised in order to add a total of 11 units to the existing structure. The common area, landscaping and lobby will be fully restored to former 1920’s beauty and outdoor amenities such as a picnic area, dog run, and outdoor grills are being added for use of the tenants.
The entire renovation will complete in December of 2013 after 8 months of construction. Pre-leasing will being in November of 2013 with expected stabilization in January 2014
