WASHINGTON, D.C. — Whole Foods Market has signed a 40,000-square-foot retail lease to anchor the Hartley apartment building within The Parks at Walter Reed in northwest Washington, D.C. The Parks is a 3.1 million-square-foot mixed-use development from the partnership of Hines, Urban Atlantic and Triden Development.
The Hartley will be the third new construction at the site, alongside two currently underway projects: The Brooks condominiums and the Vale apartments, featuring 18,000 square feet of retail. The Hartley features 323 rental units, including 32 affordable units, and 58,000 square feet of retail space. The apartment building will be part of the project’s Town Center, which will include 100,000 square feet of dining, shopping, and entertainment fronting Georgia Avenue.
Construction on The Hartley is expected to begin in early 2020 with completion of the project set for early 2022. Torti Gallas + Partners is the architect for The Hartley, with interior design by Hickok Cole Lifestyle and landscape design by Oehme van Sweden. Retail broker CBRE + Streetsense will lease The Parks. The campus already contains a firehouse and schools, as well as housing for seniors and veterans.
