Equity Residential partnered with Hartman Design Group to transform 1800 Oak Street Apartments in Rosslyn, VA to a Class A apartment community that competes with new product in this competitive market place. Now a stunning urban living experience with all of the amenities that today’s resident demands including multiple co-working spaces, a dramatic lobby, a sports bar and a brand new state of the art fitness center.
Before completion of the major renovation in November, JiRod Freeman, the community manager, doesn’t remember anyone hanging out much in the lobby at 1800 Oak Apartments. “There was a lot of nonfunctional space.”
Since the new lobby opened, Freeman reports that these spaces are consistently occupied with residents who work from home or telecommute part-time—one day, he says, there wasn’t a single empty seat. “Everyone loves it. You’ll see random people come in here, taking pictures and selfies,” he says. “When you compare it to what it used to be, it’s just mind-blowing.”
1800 Oak Street comprises of 314 apartment homes and was originally built in 2004.
