Clark Builders Group Selected to Build Apartment and Retail Project in Northwest DC
WASHINGTON—On Thursday, March 8, The JBG Companies awarded Clark Builders Group the contract for 77H, a mixed-use apartment building located at 77 H Street, NW in Washington, DC. The project will feature four floors of apartments in addition to an 80,000 square-foot urban Walmart with grocery and pharmacy, the first in the city and one of the first ever mixed-use concepts for the chain, as well as in-line retail shops on the first floor of the building atop two levels of below-ground parking.
"We believe this is an excellent plan with a great design that will bring new living and shopping opportunities to the community," said Dean Cinkala, partner at JBG. "Turning a parking lot into an attractive mixed-use development makes a welcome contribution to the city and further strengthens this urban corridor."
JBG selected Clark Builders Group (CBG) as the general contractor of this pedestrian-friendly apartment community in late 2011. CBG will work with architects Mushinsky Voelzke Associates (MV+A) and The Preston Partnership, LLC to deliver the project. Once complete, 77H will feature 303 apartments atop more than 90,000 GSF of retail space. The project's amenities will include a rooftop pool and deck, two outdoor courtyards, resident lounge, two-level fitness center, and an underground parking garage.
"The integration of Walmart as the anchor in this mixed-use development differentiates this project and creates a unique opportunity for CBG," said Keith Anderson, President of Clark Builders Group. "While we have significant experience with mixed-use projects, this community is something new that we are excited to be a part of."
Situated in the heart of DC, 77H is adjacent to Union Station and just steps away from Capitol Hill. Central to not one but four thriving neighborhoods, H Street, NE, Gallery Place, Mount Vernon Triangle and NOMA, 77H is ideally located. 77H is expected to reach completion in February 2014.
