Progress at the Atlantic Plumbing Building Project
Construction may start in July on the Atlantic Plumbing Building project by JBG Companies and Walton Street Capital. The project will bring three residential buildings and more than 25,000 square feet of retail space to 8th and V Streets NW, near the 9:30 Club.
The project includes retail space dedicated to local artists, luxury “green” amenities and streetscape improvements.
The addresses for the three sites are:
- 807 V Street NW and 2112 8th Street NW
- 2030 8th Street NW
- 933-945 Florida Avenue NW
JBG representatives recently gave an update on the project and expect to receive raze permits for the buildings at 2030 8th Street, 807 V Street and 2112 8th Street next week. They will start demolition as soon as possible. JBG hasn’t yet selected a general contractor but once they have they will be meeting with all surrounding neighbors to discuss construction traffic control plans, construction mobilization and staging-delivery plans, pedestrian pathways, parking, security, etc.
The parking garage access was moved to 8th Street due to pedestrian safety and possible traffic backups mid-block on V Street NW.
The project will tie in with the 9:30 Club and other neighbors, “targeting more artistic/cultural uses including a possible small theater, as well as a café or restaurant,” said James Nozar from JBG Cos. in an interview given to Borderstan last year.
