CityVista Mixed-Use Development

Washington, DC
"CityVista is an award-winning mixed use development in the heart of the dynamic Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood."

Located in the Mount Vernon Triangle area of the city, CityVista is a major building block in the city’s plans to attract new residents and create a vibrant city life near the new Washington Convention Center.

Torti Gallas and Partners was part of the winning competitive redevelopment team of the Old Wax Museum site at 5th and K Streets, NW in downtown Washington, DC. The project was advertised and awarded through the RLA Revitalization Corporation (RLARC).

Torti Gallas worked closely with community residents, stakeholders, city officials and our developer clients through a public process, listening to the wants and desires of the community and helping develop consensus for the design direction. The resulting development includes a Safeway store with a Starbucks coffee shop, dry cleaner and bank; retail space, condominium and apartment units, 20% of which are reserved as affordable housing. Below grade structured parking allows for a 1-acre interior courtyard and a vibrant street frontage that helped revitalize the area.
