Atlantic Plumbing

Last month, while visiting Washington, DC, I toured the soon-to-be-completed Atlantic Plumbing mixed use project from The JBG Companies and Walton Street Capital. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects with the industrial contemporary style found in their numerous New York projects, Atlantic Plumbing includes two buildings on the site of the former Atlantic Plumbing Supply Company in the Shaw neighborhood. The larger of the two buildings, at 2112 Eighth Street NW, features 310 units of rentals and condos clad in an envelope of glass and corten steel exoskeleton. Closer to completion, 2030 Eighth Street NW includes 62 units clad in an envelope of industrial styled windows that creates an oversized running bond pattern. Interior details throughout 2030 Eighth Street NW reinforce the industrial aesthetic.

Completion on both buildings is slated for later this year.
