A 145-unit, luxury apartment project to be developed at 1339 E Street, SE, in Washington, DC.
An extremely rare opportunity to develop an institutional-scale residential project in the heart of Capitol Hill.
The Lockwood, located at 13th and E Streets, SE, is a 145-unit boutique apartment community, on a one-acre parcel that formerly housed a trash truck depot and an auto repair center. Located 1 ½ blocks from the Potomac Avenue Metro Station, the project is named after Belva Lockwood, a famous late nineteenth century Suffragist who was the first woman to argue in front of the Supreme Court and is considered by many as the first woman in United States history to run for President.
In partnership with institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, The Lockwood Apartments was designed by SK&I and Edit Lab/Streetsense, who partnered with Insight and J.P. Morgan on The Apollo. The project recalls the spirit of the period during which Belva Lockwood lived and much of the neighborhood was built.
Initial delivery of residential units occurred in May 2019. Construction was completed in June 2019. The lease-up was completed and occupancy stabilized in January 2021.
The Lockwood presented an extremely rare opportunity to develop an institutional-scale residential project in the heart of Capitol Hill. It is located across the street from Insight’s Buchanan Park project, including the renovation of the 1895 Buchanan School by Ditto Residential and the construction of 41 new townhomes by Insight and Federal Capital Partners. The projects are part of a wave of significant neighborhood investment, including the recent renovation of the Watkins Elementary School and the redevelopment of the Safeway at 14th Street, SE.
