BKV Group Completes MXU Project in D.C.

Design firm BKV Group has announced the completion of Beckert’s Park, a nearly three-acre mixed-use project including 325 apartments and a new 60,000-square-foot Safeway grocery store in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington D.C.

Located at the corner of 14th Street and D Street SE, the development replaces a parking lot and existing Safeway store that stood on the site for nearly 50 years. BKV Group worked with developer Foulger-Pratt to create a design that adhered to the aesthetic imperatives of the historic neighborhood while addressing the needs of the community. Residences at Beckert’s Park include studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 495 to 1,706 square feet.

“The redevelopment of this prominent corner in the Capitol Hill neighborhood was an incredible opportunity for both Foulger-Pratt and the community, but it needed to be handled with sensitivity to the surrounding architecture,” said Jack Boarman, CEO at BKV Group. “Our solution truly transformed the site from one that detracted from the urban landscape to one that not only integrates seamlessly with the neighborhood, but also adds a robust mix of residential and retail that will serve the community for years to come.”
