Residential Properties

 
Below you will find an introduction to our residential community. From garden communities to high-rise glass towers, nationally-known architecture to diminutive dwellings, luxury residences to moderate income as well as public housing, Washington's south waterfront supports a remarkably rich variety of lifestyles. We welcome you to learn more about our community.

This page provides basic background and contact information (website if available) on residences. Most multifamily and town home communities are self-managed. For other properties the management company's name and phone number are provided.




Condominiums / Cooperatives
Capitol Park
Capitol Park, with the exception of Potomac Place (formerly Capitol Park) Apartments which was designed by Satterlee and Smith, the remainder of the complex was designed by noted Washington architet Clothethiel Smith & Associates. Developed as the first racially integrated project in a southern city, the complex includes five high-rise towers and 399 row houses. Towers feature brick or terra cotta latticework to emphasize their "domestic" feel. Tower units have individual balconies featuring detailed tile screens. Renowned landscape architect Daniel Kiley created a landscape that was an integral element of the park-like housing complex. Tower lobby entrances and townhouse corridors were carefully designed to unite the interior and exterior. The complex won multiple awards. Then Washington Post architectural critic Wolf von Eckhardt wrote that the townhouse design was "so pleasing it becomes positively exciting, they manage to combine an appeal to familiar associations of prettiness with our intellectual demands on honest modern architecture."
Capitol Park II Condominium
The 81 town home community is arranged around a series of private/public courtywards that help create a sense of community and provide a green oasis in the middle of the city.

Carrollsburg
The sister complex to Tiber Island, what began as Carrollsburg Square consisted of townhouses that were the first condominiums to be sold in Washington, DC following the December 1962 legalization of condominiums. Having also won the second design competition in Southwest, architects Keyes, Lethbridge & Condon designed this complex on the opposite side of Fourth Street. This visually and materially similar complex occupied the formerly occupied site of dwellings of M Place (Van Street). The landscape architect, developers, and construction company were all the same as at Tiber Island. The complex included 387 aparments in three high-rise buildings, along with 140 townhouses. Carrollsburg Square was designed to help knit this community together. In the most significant departure from the Tiber Island design, Carrollsburg featured a more park-like courtyard above the central parking garage. Years later, units ceded from Carrollsburg Square to create Carrollsburg A Condominum.

Harbour Square Cooperatives

Architect Clotheiel Woodard Smith arranged eight adjoined buildings of varying design around three quadrangles. Perhaps the most distinquished element is a one-acre reflecting pool, which covers a 500-space underground parking garage. Because of the remarkable variety of sizes of units—some of which have private roof gardens—the complex has housed residents with diverse backgrounds, including dozens of senators, congressman, judges, and generals. The complex also noted for its incorporation of a group of historic townhouses now on the National Register.

Formerly part of Town Center Towers, this property is one of a quartet of high-rise towers bracketing Waterfront Station designed by legendary architect I.M. Pei.
