JPI Residential Projects ("Capitol Yards")
70 and 100 I Street, 909 New Jersey Ave.

Residential developer JPI is developing three properties along I Street, grouped together as "Capitol Yards." 70 and 100 I Street (dubbed the Jefferson and the Axiom at Capitol Yards), a $210 million project with two towers containing 448 and 246 units, respectively, opened their bottom floors in summer 2008, and across the street at 909 New Jersey ("909 at Capitol Yards"), has 237 units and 6,000 square feet of retail, on the former site of the Nexus Gold Club. JPI had planned a fourth project, 23 I Street ("23 Eye at Capitol Yards"), with an additional 421 residential units and up to 35,000 square feet of retail space, but defaulted on the loan in 2009, and the property went to Ruben Companies.

The main entrance to 70 I, with the exposed brick echoing the "warehouse/industrial" feel. (6/28/08)

The reverse view of the entrance. (6/28/08)

The residents' pub/club, with foosball, Playstation, a bar, and more. (6/28/08)

The pub's seating area, looking out onto the courtyard. (6/28/08)

The bar in the sports pub. (6/28/08)

Pool tables and dart boards. (6/28/08)

The conference room. (6/28/08)

The home theater room, which seats about 10, being checked out by visitors to the June 28 open house. Don't worry, it's usually dark--just needed the flash to see anything. (6/28/08)

The business center. (6/28/08)

The fitness center. (6/28/08)

70 I's interior courtyard, as seen from the doorway of the pub. (6/28/08)

Another view of 70 I's courtyard, and 100 I's courtyard on the other side of the fence. (Food fights across the divide are not encouraged.) (6/28/08)

The model 1 br/2 ba/den. (6/28/08)

The reverse view of the same model, which looks out on I Street. (6/28/08)

The model 1 br/1 ba. (6/28/08)

The same model's kitchen. (6/28/08)

The roof deck and poll have some rather stunning views, especially of a white-domed neighbor to the north. (The Capitol looks much larger in person than in this photo.) (6/28/08)

The view to the south and west shows the ballpark, the Potomac River, Alexandria, Crystal City, and more. (6/28/08)

The southwest corner of the roof has a nook where you can look straight down Half Street, and into the ballpark. Not a bad spot for watching the post-game fireworks. (5/22/08)

Another view of the brick-and-tile design of the roof deck. (5/22/08)

The southern views from the roof show the explosion of construction to the southeast.... (6/28/08)

.... And the not-quite-exploded-just-yet areas to the southwest. For more views of Near Southeast from the roof, see the Photo Archive. (6/28/08)
