Foxhall Building Adams Morgan Mixed-Use Project Across From Its Line DC Hotel
As it prepares to deliver the Line DC hotel in Adams Morgan, Foxhall Partners is working on a mixed-use apartment building across the street.
Foxhall presented plans to ANC 1C Wednesday detailing an 80-unit mixed-use development it is building at 1773-1777 Columbia Road NW.
"We’re big believers in Adams Morgan," Foxhall managing partner Matt Wexler said. "We love the neighborhood and we anticipate the hotel being a catalyst for further improvement and diversification in the neighborhood. Being directly across the street from that will be a major amenity to our future apartment residents."
The six-story building will include at least 9,500 SF of retail, Urban Turf reports. The project would replace a retail strip that included Payless Shoes, T-Mobile and Old City Cafe.
Foxhall began assembling the properties in 2014 with its partner, Beztak Properties. The developer came to an agreement with the ANC in 2015 to preserve the one-story commercial façades. It has since demolished the rest of the buildings and is finishing up site work. The developer plans to deliver the project in Q3 2018.
Across the street, at 1780 Columbia Road NW, Foxhall and Sydell Group redeveloped an old church into the 220-room Line DC hotel, which it is preparing to deliver later this spring. Wexler said the firm saw a lack of rental apartments being built in the popular neighborhood and decided it would be a good complement to the hotel, which will also include two restaurants from popular chefs and a coffee shop.
