Perseus Realty, LLC of Washington, D.C. and its joint venture partner Jefferson Apartment Group of McLean, Virginia started construction on a new mixed-use development at 14th and W Streets, N.W. in Washington, D.C. in November 2010. The approximately 320,000 square foot project will include 231 rental apartments, an all-new 44,000 square foot YMCA facility, and over 11,000 square feet of ground-level retail space. The state-of-the-art YMCA and apartments delivered in fall 2013.
14W's apartments provide residents with the opportunity to live just steps away from Metro and the vibrant nightlife of Washington's historic U Street corridor. In addition to 212 luxury market-rate one-and two-bedroom apartment homes, 14W offers 19 apartments permanently designated as community housing for residents earning up to 60 percent of area median income. Along the 14th Street facade, shops and restaurants will serve customers behind restored historic townhome facades.
