Groundbreaking got underway in December 2010 on the Jefferson 14W project, and the massive residential-retail complex will open in stages during the next few months. The massive complex at the northeast corner of 14th and W Streets NW will also include a new YMCA on the 1400 block of W Street.
A spokesperson for the developer, Perseus Realty, said, “We are currently planning to open the residential portion of the project in late November or early December. The first three floors will open with the initial delivery. The top four floors with the subsequent turnover three to four weeks later.” It is anticipated that the YMCA will open sometime in January.
According to Perseus, the approximately 320,000 square foot project will include 231 rental apartments, an all-new 44,000 square foot YMCA facility, and more than 11,000 square feet of ground-level retail space.
