Washington, D.C.

Located at the corner of 20th Street and Connecticut Avenue, NW, this building is a repurposing office to multifamily conversion from the former Peace Corps Headquarters to a residential apartment building and Hartman Design Group is thrilled to be the interior design team on the project.

The adaptive reuse of 1111 20th Street will provide a home for savvy residents who desire urban living and access to high-end retail, restaurants and employment options. Located a few blocks south of Dupont Circle, the location is highly walkable, teaming with vibrant culture, and in close proximity to the Metro. With approximately 13,000 square feet of amenity space, the building will feature resort-style living in an urban center and HDG is here for it.

The 185,000-square-foot former office building is planned to offer a Class A experience in about 160 residential units, mixed between one-and two-bedroom units. Lucky residents will enjoy a luxury experience, complete with rooftop patio, gym and ground-floor retail. The building was actually the first project Willco developed in the 1960s – by the current Chairman’s grandfather.

Take a look at the concept boards for an idea of what we envision.

Both the senior and family portions are projected to be completed by summer of 2024.

St. Elmo
Bethesda, MD

New 22-story mixed-use development in the heart of downtown Bethesda.  The building will have four levels of below grade parking, ground floor retail, and 21 levels of Class A Luxury apartments and modern amenities.

The project also includes an updated promenade connecting St. Elmo and Fairmont avenues.

Pentagon Centre -The Milton
Pentagon City, VA

Just a short walk from Amazon’s planned National Landing headquarters and in close proximity to The Pentagon, Downtown DC, and Reagan National Airport, The Milton connects the tree-lined streets of South Arlington to vibrant Pentagon City shopping and dining. It is designed around connection and restoration, around neighborhood strolls, small-town service, and resort-style amenities.

Phase II of Kimco’s Pentagon Centre, The Milton, is the second multifamily residential building to adorn this site and will begin occupancy in mid-2023. Located directly above the Pentagon City Metro Station, 16,000 square feet of new retail joins 329,000 square feet of existing prime retail in this mixed-use community.

When designing The Milton, an 11-story, 253-unit residential tower, Hartman Design Group’s interior design team looked to the community, its resident base, and its energized urban lifestyle as inspiration. With a distinctively playful yet sophisticated vibe, the design captures the neighborhood by connecting with the busy streetscape. From the lobby’s fireplace lounge to the three-sided glass box architecture that inhabits the coworking hospitality lounge, every element of the interior is designed to initiate social interaction. Weaving original art throughout the interior and exterior spaces was a design focus from the start of the project. Working closely with the Kimco team, HDG planned for and curated each piece of art on the property.

Capturing light with full-height windows, the penthouse floor comprises a large fitness center, yoga room, and a clubroom. The clubroom, designed as the ultimate social experience, is a sun-filled space anchored by the tones and textures of nature and made vibrant by an unexpected palette of colorful accents.

Blurring the lines between the indoors and outdoors, there are two fourth-floor courtyards. Conceived to be a remote work area, one terrace features a glass box, an indoor conference room, and multiple powered outdoor workspaces. The second terrace provides a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

On the roof deck, play is top bill. Adding joy and fun through nature, color, and materiality, the expansive roof deck is designed for every social activity that one could dream up. Lifestyle elements include a full outdoor kitchen, multiple intimate niches to grill and dine, relax, watch TV, play games, exercise, fire pits to gather around, and a large pool to cool off on hot summer days. Sustainable and climate-conscious, the roof has many green spaces and lush plantings including a vegetable garden free for the picking and potting tables for those residents that love to get their hands in the soil.

Let’s not forget our furry friends. The resort-style pet spa elevates the experience for humans and pets alike.

Beyond Phase II, Kimco has also secured entitlements for future phases which would result in a fully developed site to include 346,000 square feet of retail; 705,000 square feet of office space; and a 200-room hotel in addition to the 693 residential units, which would combine to bring the total project size to nearly two million square feet.

Coulter Avenue Apartments at Suburban Square
Ardmore, PA

Suburban Square is a beautiful lifestyle center situated in the heart of the Main Line where dense demographics and high incomes combine.

Skymark (Reston Gateway)
Reston, VA

Hartman Design Group is delighted to be the interior designer on Skymark, a new construction multifamily high-rise tower in Reston, Virginia.

Rising 39 stories and enjoying a vista that includes the scenic Northern Virginia mountains and the National Cathedral, the majestic Skymark is the inaugural building in the next phase of Reston Town Center, home to world-class corporations, thriving retail, and exciting dining and entertainment options alike. It is hard to overstate this apartment tower’s convenient location: next to the new Reston Town Center Silver Line metro station for an easy commute to Dulles Airport and Washington, D.C.; adjacent to the Washington and Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park and bicycle trail; within walking distance of the vibrant hive of activity that is Reston Town Center.

HDG wanted to create a place where the line between outdoors and indoors blurs with biophilic elements in abundance. We also wanted to design for the sweet spot where work and home lives blend effortlessly and employed an array of tucked-away co-working and social spots with cozy booths, private conference and tea rooms, and conversation nooks.

Dual lobbies suggest the East and West Tower’s nuanced differences. HDG struck an authentic, artisanal, and timeless mood with its textures and finishes for the smaller East Tower lobby that includes a communal table, seating nook, hospitality lounge and mail room. The larger West Tower lobby, with its Uber Lounge, concierge area, mail room, reception lounge, and tearoom, strikes a serene and refined note of intended simplicity with natural elements and colors enhanced by blue steel. Think elegant, tactile, dialed-in, thoughtful, classic, comfortable, and approachable.
The expansive 5th floor amenity suite bridges both towers as it metaphorically spans residents’ passions and pursuits too. In addition to ample co-working areas, it offers everything from a sleek fitness center to a cozy fireplace lounge, all with views & connections to our spectacular outdoor terrace. There, you’ll find a resort-style pool and deck offering plenty of extras. Fourth-floor pet spa and bicycle maintenance/storage areas tick other boxes to complete the picture and tenants’ lives.

When it is complete, you will want to reclaim your free time and recenter at Skymark.

444 Maple
Vienna, Virginia

Hekemian and Company is developing a 150 unit apartment building in the heart of downtown Vienna.

Ranked in the top 100 places to live in America, the township of Vienna, Virginia, is nestled just 17 miles west of Washington, DC. Having partnered on many successful projects, Hekemian and HDG again came together on 444 Maple Avenue. When designing interiors, we believe in telling a story, and Vienna has a rich one.  Ever-evolving from colonial days to its current modern landscape, Vienna has retained its village ambiance.  Viewing this project with a local perspective, a unique and authentic story evolved.

Hekemian is developing a mixed-use community (Retail and Residential) on the corner of Maple and Nutley in Vienna, VA.  In addition to highly ranked public schools, its assets include a downtown with many small businesses. The metro is located just south of the town, and a portion of the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park hiker/biker trail cuts through the center of the city. Vienna has a rich history going back to the 18th century, which provides an opportunity to create a sense of place in the residential building

Alexandria, VA

With meticulous consideration to detail, the HDG design team strove for community connection in every aspect of the interior design.  Driven by imagination and collaboration, the opportunity to tell the Alexandria story and meld it with contemporary comfort in this condominium community was foremost in our senses.  The story begins with the history of the place and the building location on the site of the historical bottling plant.  With the Torpedo Factory Art Center just down the street and the nearness of the bike trail, the team had the perfect opportunity to bring art, history, nature, and craft together in one unique multi-family experience.
