A rendering of what Sky House will look like when finished.

On March 12, Urban Atlantic and The JBG Companies, together with their development partners, civic and community leaders and business representatives, celebrated the official commencement of construction for Sky House, two residential buildings totaling 530 units located at the corner of Fourth and M Streets SW.

Sky House is an adaptive reuse of two commercial buildings into two new luxury residential communities. The two tallest buildings in Southwest DC, Sky House will feature stunning panoramic views from a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom residences with floor-to-ceiling windows.

District of Columbia Mayor Vincent C. Gray attended the event. “The development of Sky House represents a significant step in the evolution of the Southwest

Waterfront, helping to define the area as a premier urban location to live and enjoy the benefits of waterfront amenities, Metro accessibility and a thriving, culturally rich local community,” said Mayor Gray, in a press release.

Participants in the ceremony included Andy Litsky, ANC6 representative; Edward Chaglassian, Senior Vice President, The JBG Companies; DC Mayor Vincent C. Gray; Vicki Davis, President, Urban Atlantic; and DC Councilmember Tommy Wells.

Sky House is scheduled to open Fall 2013. When complete, Sky House will have sleek interior designs, upscale fixtures, hardwood flooring and contemporary kitchens. The community is pet-friendly and amenities include a rooftop deck with pool, e-lounge, resident clubroom with gaming elements, pool table and movie screening area, extensive gym, and an outdoor courtyard with sitting areas, TVs, gas fireplace and grills.

Urban Atlantic is the developer for the project. The JBG Companies is the financial partner and will serve as the management company. Sky House was designed by Wiencek + Associates Architects + Planners DC, LLC and is being constructed by Hamel Builders of Washington, LLC.
