The 7th Street Mixed Use Project in the Shaw neighborhood of Northwest
Washington, D.C. features twelve assisted living units with common
spaces and twenty apartments – all surrounding an inviting landscaped
courtyard. Situated near Metro and bus lines as well as shopping and the
night life, this building makes the most of its urban setting. By
incorporating retail space along 7th Street and accommodating a variety
of living arrangements from assisted living to families with children,
it contributes to the vibrant diversity of the city.
On the first and second floors are the assisted living units with views
to the courtyard and access to private patios. Although the units are
equipped with modest kitchens, the residents take the majority of their
meals in the common space on the second floor. The common space is
equipped with a full service kitchen as well as a spacious common space
facing 7th Street to the west and the courtyard to the east. Residents
can also occupy the large adjacent terrace overlooking the courtyard.
On the third, fourth and fifth floors are the apartments ranging in size
from studios to three bedrooms. All units are spacious and have floor to
ceiling windows with views to the city and to the courtyard. The goal
was to create sustainable efficient and affordable housing which will
provide its inhabitants with comfort, light and pride.
