E Street Development Group, a JV led by CityPartners and Potomac Investment Properties, has announced the grand opening of 400 E St SW will be celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony next week.
The state-of-the-art complex includes a new, 214-room Hyatt Place Hotel with an outdoor pool, meeting rooms, a fitness center and a rooftop bar that offers breathtaking views of DC’s iconic monuments. Also on-site will be the new home for Engine Company 13, the first fire station to be built in the District in more than 20 years. Kid Power Inc, a local nonprofit that aids underserved children in the District, has made 400 E St SW the location for its brand new HQ. “400 E St SW is a beautifully designed mixed-use project that is the manifestation of a successful public-private partnership. From day one, our team was committed to developing a project that would truly serve the community,” said CityPartners founder and principal Geoffrey Griffis in a statement. The ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 24, at 11:30am. This project represents the first phase of E Street Development’s transformation of this block of Southwest DC. Phase 2 is slated to begin construction in 2017 at 555 E St, the site of the old Engine Company 13. Plans for Phase 2 call for a 300k SF mixed-use building that will include residential, retail and office space.
