Congress Heights Mixed-Use Project Begins Construction 

Standard Real Estate Investments has started the first phase of construction at its recently acquired property adjacent to the Congress Heights Metro Station in Washington D.C.’s Ward 8. Demolition of existing buildings on the site will commence on June 19, 2023.  

The site is located at 1331 Alabama Ave SE. Standard has partnered with Trammell Crow Company (TCC) to develop and lease up to 240,000 square feet of commercial office and retail space. Construction is expected to be completed by 2026. 

“We are incredibly honored to usher in a new era for this well-located site and the demolition of the existing buildings is just the first step in importing economic activity, amenities, and jobs to the Congress Heights neighborhood,” said Jerome Nichols, president of Standard.
