Kettler to Begin Construction on Luxury Mid-Rise Apartment in Adams Morgan, Washington, D.C.

Kettler to Begin Construction on Luxury Mid-Rise Apartment in Adams Morgan, Washington, D.C.

“The demand for quality rental housing in the District continues to grow,” said Robert C. Kettler, chairman and CEO at Kettler. “This project will be the first new multifamily development to hit the submarket in several years and we’re excited to introduce this sophisticated building design to the Adams Morgan community.”

Currently known as 2101 Champlain Street, the five-story luxury apartment building will offer a mix of studios, one and two bedroom units. “The design layout of the apartment homes will offer a unique blend of contemporary, minimalist design and thoughtful apartment layouts that will enhance urban living, without the spatial compromise of micro-units,” added Kettler.

The creative floorplans, developed by Kettler and R2L Architects, include one-bedroom apartments that are organized around a central feature incorporating the kitchen, bathroom and laundry closet and offer extensive built-in cabinetry for storage. By centralizing these elements, the remainder of the apartment is left uncluttered for residents to furnish and use as they desire. Additional unit features include wood flooring, European kitchen appliances, nine-foot ceilings, plus balconies and rooftop terraces in select units.

“2101 Champlain Street will offer a building compatible with its historic surroundings but with an eclectic, urban sophistication, that is reflective of the neighborhood. A key concept in this design is the apartments that will offer an open floorplan circulating around an elegant, central feature finished with custom cabinetry. The result is a free-flowing, light-filled apartment that offers a cool, Scandinavian look unlike anything currently available the area,” said Graham Tyrrell, vice president of multifamily development for Kettler.

Located at the center of the District’s most vibrant neighborhoods, 2101 Champlain Street provides residents with a number of amenities within walking distance. Amenities in the building have been curated to provide areas for work and play. Space for co-working with an adjacent bike room will convert to a social lounge in the evenings. While a lushly landscaped interior garden and roof-deck overlooking downtown DC will offer further options for relaxation in the heart of the city. Additional resident amenities include a fitness center, underground parking, two-level contemplative courtyard, carriageway with water feature, and outdoor living room with fireplace.

In addition to R2L Architects as the project’s architect and interior designer, the project team includes SK&A Engineers as the structural engineer, Parker Rodriguez will serve as landscape architect, LF Jennings is the general contractor, and Bohler Engineering will serve as civil engineer. Construction completion on 2101 Champlain Street is projected for Q4 2016.
