At the beginning of May 2015, Moseley Construction Group broke ground on 1326 Florida Avenue, NE. The project will be a four story, 45 unit luxury apartment building with 16 underground parking spaces and 18 bicycle spaces. This is Moseley Construction Group’s first project with Ditto Residential, a local boutique multifamily developer. Moseley Construction Group is very excited about the new relationship and to be a part of Ditto’s largest new construction project to date for their company.
With Dep Designs as the architect on board, the most important priority is to deliver a project with great architecture and design. “Oftentimes in multifamily development, you don’t see a commitment to those things,” Ditto Residential says, “From the exterior facade to the interior finishes, 1326 Florida Avenue will reflect our commitment to building spaces with transformative design.”
With Ditto Residential’s team being an advocate for high design and Moseley’s detail-oriented nature, the process of seeing this project through has been a great match so far. “Ditto Residential’s creativity and collaborative nature is bringing out the best of our enhanced preconstruction services,” says Johnny Moseley, President of Moseley Construction Group, “Both Ditto and Moseley have aligned company values, making communication and problem solving easier.” As a growing company, Moseley Construction Group is looking ahead by surrounding ourselves with clients who are also growth and future focused. “We want to be associated with DC’s best, brightest, and highest respected developers and Ditto Residential fully meets that criteria.”
The project is located at the corner of Florida Avenue and Trinidad Avenue in a location that was most recently an underutilized commercial space and just one block north of the hustle and bustle of H Street. Units range from 310 – 1000 square feet in size, with a mix of efficiencies up to 3-bedroom floor plans. Ditto Residential expects the project will enliven this corner of an already vibrant neighborhood.
Another cool fact about the project? The 37,300 square foot lot was once home to the American League Park, a Washington Senators’ baseball park in the very early 1900s, before the team was moved to present day Nationals Park. It was at this location where Dummy Hoy officially asked the umpire to use hand signals such as “strike” and “ball” and it is still used in every baseball game nationwide today.
