by Kinsley,

Kinsley Construction, Inc. is proud to announce that it has been awarded a contract to deliver projects at 1923-1925 Vermont Avenue, NW; 912 U Street, NW and 1966 ½ Street, NW in Washington, DC.

The Vermont Avenue property is the former Grimke School building and will be renovated into a cultural and commercial office building. Simultaneously, on the adjacent U Street property, Kinsley will construct a new podium stick luxury condominium during Phase 1 of the project.

The African American Civil War Museum, presently located at the 9 ½ Street property, will relocate into the renovated Vermont Avenue building, freeing up the 9 ½ Street building for Phase 2 of the project in which Kinsley will renovate the space to create a residential apartment building.

Kinsley is partnering with developer, Community Three and architect and design firm, Torti Gallas Urban to deliver the projects. Construction began in September and is scheduled for completion by December 2021.
