Two-phase redevelopment totaling 1,300,000-sf with 1,131 residential units, 44,000-sf of retail, community center and 979 parking spaces in a below-grade garage.

Description

Located in the heart of NoMa, Sursum Corda will be a vibrant, transformational, mixed socioeconomic community organized around a new public park and a pedestrian promenade. The new project includes 1,131 residential units, 44,000 SF of retail and a new community center.

 

The new development replaces an inward looking 1960s-era low-income housing co-op with a new street system that stitches the original city grid back together. The new Sursum Corda will engage the surrounding neighborhoods by extending First Place NW down to L Street, extending Pierce Street eastward through the site and ultimately widening L Street to its proper width.  This community-oriented project includes 199 affordable units welcoming back many residents of the original Sursum community. The project will boast over 40,000 SF of landscaped outdoor space, bringing more than 40 SF of green space per person. 

 

Phase One of the Sursum Corda Redevelopment is the southern portion of the site that was approved under a Stage 1 PUD and contains a 9-story building on the west, and a 10-story building on the east.The Southwest and Southeast buildings will be light gauge construction with load bearing metal stud walls and composite metal deck floors. The project will be entirely residential, with amenity areas aligned along the pedestrian pathway and park, and thru-views to interior courtyards.  The Southwest building will contain a pool on the 2nd floor, and the Southeast building will have a rooftop penthouse with outdoor terraces. The buildings will be connected underground by two continuous levels of parking with 300 parking spaces and an additional 36 tandem spaces.
