The Hartley is a 323-unit mixed-use apartment community with a Whole Foods Market as its retail anchor in Northwest DC. This six-story community consists of five stories of wood framing over a one-story concrete podium with 317 apartments and six townhomes. It is a part of The Parks at Walter Reed, a mixed-use master-planned redevelopment of the 66-acre historic Walter Reed Army Medical Center with 2,200 residential units plus office and retail. The project's large, complicated parcel presented demolition and structural challenges to maintain and build atop an existing below-grade parking garage on site. CBG worked on preconstruction with the owner and design teams for more than two years to realize the project vision. The Hartley features two interior courtyards; the north courtyard includes pool and amenity space, and the south courtyard includes a zen garden. The second-floor amenity space includes a lounge, multi-purpose room, fitness center, and pet spa. The studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units feature high-end finishes, including quartz countertops and EnergyStar® appliances. The community looks out over a beautiful plaza that welcomes the public from Georgia Avenue and is located just half a mile from Rock Creek Park, a 1,754-acre city park in DC.
The Hartley is designed to achieve LEED® Silver certification and features sustainable features such as biorentension planters, stormwater management vaults, a green roof, and EnergyStar® appliances in every unit. The team also used recycled concrete from demolition in the new construction. A transit-oriented community, The Hartley includes a bikeshare station and is just a 13-minute walk from the Takoma Metro station on DC's Red Line.
