Grosvenor Americas Provides 'F1RST' Residents with Rooftop Theatre Overlooking Nats Games

First residential community to offer Nationals Park views

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 7, 2016) – Grosvenor Americas, a property investment and development company, today released a rooftop rendering of their F1RST residential community in Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. The rendering reveals the District’s first rooftop stadium-seating view into Nationals Park. F1RST will deliver in early 2017.

“F1RST will be the first residential community in the Capitol Riverfront with expansive views into Nats Park,” said Jonathan Carr, senior vice president of development for Grosvenor’s D.C. office. “Next year, F1RST residents can be a part of Opening Day by relaxing at home – on their rooftop. The F1RST rooftop will be a fantastic environment for the residents.”

F1RST is designed to LEED Silver and will offer 325 rental apartments, of which 50 will be offered at below market rental rates. F1RST not only provides an outdoor rooftop theatre for residents, but the 450,000-square-foot mixed-used development will also provide an array of amenities including a rooftop pool and hot tub, full-service concierge staff and a 2,300-square-foot fitness center. The development also includes a 170-room Residence Inn by Marriott and over 24,000 square feet of retail space – where Taylor Gourmet and Chop’t are already confirmed.

F1RST is less than a quarter of a mile from the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, a block from Navy Yard Metro Station, a mile from Capitol Hill and minutes away from The Yards.

As part of Grosvenor’s “Living cities” approach, nearly 87 percent of construction waste for the residential portion of F1RST will be diverted from the local landfill to recycling facilities.

F1RST was designed by Hickok Cole Architects and co-developed by McCaffery Interests, who also provide construction, leasing and property management for the project. Bethesda-based Clark Enterprises is an equity partner in both the residential and retail components.
