1st & M

Washington, D.C.

Partnered with Paradigm Construction Company, Power Design completed the largest HUD funded project ever built, 1st & M, in September of 2012. The design-build project received numerous accolades, including ENR’s Best Projects of The Mid-Atlantic award in 2013. 1st & M boasts an on-site Starbucks, indoor and outdoor theaters, a SkyVue rooftop pool and spa, and a plant wall among other unique features. Not only does 1st & M offer much to the D.C. community, but it was a success in terms of construction for all parties involved; finishing ahead of schedule and under budget while leasing out units at a record pace. Now a part of AvalonBay Communities, the property was also voted best apartment building in D.C. by Washington City Paper readers.
