Balfour Beatty Construction selected to build residential high-rise in Washington, D.C.’s NoMa neighborhood by Wood Partners

26 February 2016


Balfour Beatty Construction has been selected by Wood Partners to build its new residential tower in Washington’s fast-growing NoMa (North of Massachusetts Avenue) neighborhood. Located at 33 N Street NE within walking distance of the U.S. Capitol and Union Station, the 13 storey residential development will compliment the continued revitalization of D.C.’s urban core that has transformed the NoMa neighborhood into a thriving entertainment, retail and employment district.

With demolition underway, the 33 N Street NE project will be a 346-unit, concrete-framed luxury high-rise development over a three-level parking garage with 210 spaces. The building will include a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, and will also offer a select number of micro units and two-level suites. Custom-designed amenity spaces throughout the development have been thoughtfully designed to foster interaction and a true sense of community. Additional lifestyle features will include a fitness center, club room, expansive co-working space, rooftop pool with resort-style cabanas and barbecue grilling stations, and dog park.

Bryan Frady, project executive, Balfour Beatty Construction, said “Wood Partners is well known for developing intelligently-designed projects that greatly enhance communities around the country and we are honored to be their construction partner. We have a great history working with Wood Partners, particularly in the Southeast region, and we’re excited to be their construction partner for the first time in the Mid-Atlantic region. Our team has been deeply involved on this project throughout the pre-construction phase and will continue leveraging the latest technologies and Lean construction methodologies to deliver this tremendous project.”

Designed by Hickock Cole Architects, the project is registered with the certification goal of LEED® Certified.
