NoMa Apartments Opts to Offer Swedish Lifestyle
Skanska USA Commercial Development, the Swedish real estate developer plans its first residential project in Washington. The apartment will be designed around the Swedish concept of "lagom," or creating a life that is just right.
The building is to be called Resa. It is the Swedish word for journey and will be part of Skanska's Tiber Place project at 22 M St., Northeast, in NoMa between North Capitol and First Streets. Moreover, Tiber Place will include three buildings for office, residential, retail and restaurants respectively.
The 12-story, 326-unit luxury residential building construction will start next fall and is expected to be done by late 2018. Skanska gives details to the design as the concept of practical simplicity which creates open, sustainable and inviting interiors where tenants can live and relax at the same time.
"Tenants today are looking for a live-work-play ecosystem. With RESA, we have taken what we know from our successful multifamily developments in our other markets to provide a fresh perspective and a different kind of urban apartment right here in the D.C. market. The collaboration between residents, planners and developers like us has created a sense of community here that is remarkable. Our commitment to sustainability dovetails perfectly with the priorities of this neighborhood." explained Rob Ward, executive vice president for Skanska USA Commercial Development in Washington, D.C. as he provide more details about the project.
The amenities that will be available for the community will include a rooftop pool and lounge. There will also be penthouse with catering kitchen and an outdoor courtyard with gas grills and a bar. In addition to that, there will also be fitness center, a pet spa and a 24-hour concierge.
This Resa construction will be located on the planned NoMa Meander, a four-block long pedestrian promenade.
