Selective Demolition has begun at THE OXFORD, a 10-story office-to-residential conversion in Oxon Hill, MD. This 1989 high-rise, formerly known as "Constellation Centre", was home to different government offices and financial institutions.
Interior finishes, non-load bearing walls, doors and equipment are carefully being removed and separated for proper recycling and disposal on levels 1, 2, 9 & 10.
We are so excited to continue working with the Varsity Investment Group, CBG Building Company and the same team of subs as the Varsity on K!
We are so excited to share that, on 10/05, the Prince George's County Planning Board voted unanimously to approve our DSP application! The Staff Report highlighted the numerous existing services adjacent to the site, the wealth of interior & exterior amenities our building offers, as well as the many Green Building techniques incorporated in our design.
Our building will transform an existing, vacant office building into a vibrant residential community conveniently located near National Harbor, Alexandria and DC.

Construction is well underway at Century apartments! Selective demo is close to being complete, columns on the upper levels have been reinforced, apartments' new walls have been laid out, and the excavation for new storm & sewer lines is done. The recent gorgeous weather has also allowed the new waterproofing and penthouse layout to advance quickly. Thanks to our friends at McCullough Construction (Nick Interdonato, Matt McCullough, Jon Gregoryk, Christian Lucas and their subs) for working with us in a collaborative manner...

The Oxford is the adaptive re-use of an existing 10-story office building in Oxon Hill, MD. This is an exciting opportunity to enhance the built environment with quality market-rate and workforce residences in a sustainable and affordable manner.
Our team was brought during the Due Diligence phase to review existing conditions and to prepare a vision for the development.
The deep proportions of the office building allowed us to create elongated units with ample living/dining rooms and in-board bedrooms and dens. The existing ribbon windows are being preserved, and the bedrooms will be provided with a clerestory and glass doors for natural lighting.
We are excited to work with the same team we built the Varsity on K with: Varsity Investment Group, CBG Building Company, Engenium Group, Colonial Electric, Charles A. Klein & Sons, among others.
Our design goes in for permit in August and will start construction in November of this year.
We are excited to announce the renovation of The Century Apartments! This 1937 Art Deco building located in the Meridian Hill Historic District is being upgraded with brand-new electrical, plumbing & fire protection systems, new Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system at all apartments, new windows, kitchens, bathrooms and finishes throughout. The renovation also includes a new accessible entrance, the addition of a Penthouse with a roof deck & party room, and the reconfiguration of two 8th floor units into 2-level apartments.
Our team had prepared an early demo set and received approvals from DCRA to commence with selective demolition. Our team also presented the design and received approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board for the windows replacement, new entrance, and proposed penthouse addition. Two mock-up units were prepared for Owner's review of finishes and layout.
We are thrilled to work with Akelius and McCullough Construction on this phenomenal project!

Phase 2 is on schedule to be completed in the next weeks and includes the remaining apartments, elevator #2, garage levels and the new landscaped courtyard (pictured above). Our project has also received special attention from the media in recent days, including this article on the Washington Business Journal and this article on U.S. News. We are looking forward to a successful completion (and roasting marshmallows on the new fire bowl)!
The renovation at Varsity on K is 90% complete and is scheduled to be delivered on time and within budget. Our team has been punching an average of one level of apartments per week. We've also started punching corridors and back-of-the-house rooms. Finishes at the common areas are making great progress; platform lifts are installed, and the lobby is looking amazing! Exterior paint and improvements in the public space (landscaping, repair of brick pavers, etc) are complete. The landscaped courtyard has been planted and is only waiting to receive railings, furniture and a last coat of paint.
We are looking forward to a successful completion!
