Jefferson Apartment Group’s J Coopers Row Tops Out

Standing at 110 feet and 12 stories, J Coopers Row—a Jefferson Apartment Group (JAG) joint venture with The Fortis Company—has topped out at 1319 South Capitol Street SW in Washington, D.C. The luxury multifamily development overlooks Nationals Park in the
active Capitol Riverfront submarket and is expected to deliver in Q4.

J Coopers Row will comprise 312 apartments and will preserve some elements of pre-existing rowhomes into the project. The unit mix includes studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms ranging from 474 to 1,260 square feet.

“We’re excited to reach the topping out milestone on this development,” said Greg Van Wie, JAG Senior Vice President, Development Partner. “The high-rise structure is complete, which means we’re closer to seeing the building’s personality take shape. The character of the existing rowhomes inspired the architectural feel of the facade, which incorporates similar brickwork patterns and details to integrate the new building into the fabric of the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood.”

The amenities package at J Coopers Row reflects JAG’s luxury signature, as well as its setting. The rooftop swimming pool with multi-level sundeck and grilling area showcases Nationals Park stadium directly across the street, so close that residents will be able to see the scoreboard. Lifestyle amenities also include a top floor lounge with gaming, leading-edge fitness center, yoga studio, co-working areas, a maker’s studio, a dog run, pet spa, and 24/7 concierge service.

All the units feature top-of-market finishes including gourmet kitchens with islands, tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, airy 9-foot ceilings, sleek plank flooring, and in-unit washers and dryers. In addition, they feature private balconies, many with views of the Potomac River and the U.S. Capitol.

J Coopers Row sits at the corner of South Capitol and N streets on the site of the former World War II-era James T. Warring Sons factory where barrels and shipping containers were manufactured for the nearby Navy Yard. The name J Coopers Row is a nod to that history as workers who make wooden barrels have been called “coopers” since colonial times.

The development is one block from the Navy Yard-Nationals Stadium Metro station on the Green Line and is walkable to Audi Field and nearby neighborhood amenities including The Yards, The Boilermaker Shops, the Navy Yard, the Southwest Waterfront and The Wharf. It’s just a 5-minute walk to water taxi services to Georgetown, Old Town Alexandria and the National Harbor. In addition, the location affords easy access to I-695 and I-395.
