Former EPA Headquarters In Southwest Converted To Apartments

Converted Building
Sky House, where the former Environmental Protection Agency headquarters was located in Southwest Washington, has been transformed into two apartment buildings.

The towers at Sky House, one of the first LEED-certified re-use projects in the city, will be the tallest residential structures in Southwest. Residents will have unobstructed views of the Potomac, the monuments and the Capitol.

Sky House East, which opened for leasing last week, will have 266 homes, including studio and one- and two-bedroom units.

Original Building
Community amenities include a rooftop swimming pool, an observation deck with panoramic skyline and river views, an outdoor patio with seating, water features, a grill and a gas fireplace. The indoor amenities include a game room, a fitness center with a personal trainer, a conference room, a party room, a club room, an Internet lounge and concierge services. The pet-friendly building has an on-site grooming space.

Garage parking is available and residents are steps from the Southwest Waterfront Metro, shops and restaurants.

Rents at Sky House will range from the $1,600s to the $3,200s. (Wash Post, 1/6/2014)
