Located just off Wisconsin Avenue at the upper end of the Georgetown neighbourhood, our 3300 Whitehaven project envisions the redevelopment of a vacant, five story office building on a 3.15-acre lot overlooking historic Dumbarton Oaks Park. The project will retain the existing foundations and below grade parking garage, adding a new, seven-story residential building atop the remaining structure to provide up to 256 multifamily units – approximately 15% of which will be affordable – to a deeply supply constrained submarket. Additionally, the redevelopment will create over 5,000 square feet of expansion space and over 34,000 square feet of new indoor and outdoor recreation facilities for the K-12 school located next to the project site.
Notably, 3300 Whitehaven is exploring the use of mass timber to achieve a meaningful reduction in overall embodied carbon, with the potential to substantially reduce the building’s impact over similar projects constructed from more traditional building materials. In addition to creating a unique and biophilic design expression in the units and common areas, utilizing mass timber at 3300 Whitehaven will also serve a critical leading-edge function to help pioneer important construction technology within the commercial real estate development industry and to facilitate growth and increased accessibility for a technology that promises major sustainability and other far-reaching benefits.
The project is currently pursuing jurisdictional approvals and is expected to commence construction in 2024.
