City Vista

CityVista is large, urban mixed-use development located at the Old Wax Museum site at 5th and K Streets, NW, in DC’s Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood. CityVista was a major building block in the city’s plans to attract new residents and create a vibrant city life near the new Washington Convention Center. The new development on the 3.2 acre site contains a total of 685 condominium and apartment units, a 55,000 sf Safeway grocery store, 65,000 sf of additional retail space, and 830 below-ground parking spaces.

The project’s residential units were divided among two condo buildings, “The K” and “The L”, both 12 stories, and one rental apartment building standing nine stories tall, “The V.” Additional amenities for the residents include a rooftop pool, a large third floor courtyard landscaped with tree pits, a large truck loading dock serving the residential units and the retail rooftop terraces, and a second-floor fitness center.
