The Hecht Warehouse

Location:Washington, D.C.
Client: Douglas Development
Project description: The Hecht Warehouse is an esteemed Washington D.C. landmark within the emerging neighborhood of Ivy City that has been adaptively-reused to accommodate 335 loft apartment units and over 150,000 SF of lively retail.

The six-story tower was converted to residential and retail space while retaining the historic, iconic glass block exterior along New York Avenue and Fenwick Street. The partial demolition of some existing, non-contributing one-story warehouse additions allows for a thriving new retail street with an additional 50,000 SF of retail space, and ample garage and street parking.

The streetscape features ample shade-providing trees, and broad sidewalks to accommodate outdoor dining, sidewalk cafes, and a medley of other retail stores that support the development of the project and the surrounding neighborhood.

Size: 150,000 SF
