J.Coopers Row, a luxury multifamily development by Jefferson Apartment Group (JAG) and The FORTIS Cos., has opened in the Capitol Riverfront submarket of Washington, D.C. At 110 feet, the 12-story, 312-unit high-rise with studio to three-bedroom floor plans overlooks Nationals Park baseball stadium.

“J.Coopers Row is a premier luxury high-rise in a prized location, which has taken patience and dedication to entitle and develop,” says Greg Van Wie, JAG’s senior vice president, development partner. “We’re particularly pleased to execute on the vision to transform an underutilized site on one of D.C.’s grand urban boulevards and gateways to the Capitol.”

Ranging from 444 to 1,850 square feet, units include contemporary kitchens with islands, stone countertops, tile backsplashes, stainless steel appliances, plank flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, and in-unit washers and dryers. Private balconies and oversized terraces offer many residences with views of the Potomac River and the U.S. Capitol.


Residents have access to a rooftop swimming pool and an outdoor lounge area showcasing Nationals Park directly across the street, from which residents can watch live sports, concerts, and other events with views into the stadium. A penthouse-level sky lounge offers gaming, social areas, and a private dining room, while other spaces include a fitness center with a studio; a co-working area with micro-offices; a maker space; a dog run and a pet spa; and 24/7 concierge service. The project will be LEED Gold featuring solar panels, a green roof, electric vehicle charging stations, and a smoke-free environment.

The building’s façade combines historical brick detailing with modern architectural window systems providing floor-to-ceiling vistas and abundant natural light. J.Coopers Row also preserved and incorporated the historic character of six rowhomes that were built between 1892 and 1900, which are some of the last-remaining examples of the historic fabric of old Southwest D.C.

Sitting 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 reflects the site’s history and the “coopers” that crafted the wood barrels. The development is one block from the Navy Yard-Ballpark Metro station on the Green Line and is walkable to Audi Field and nearby neighborhood amenities.
