Neighborhood Revitalization

Lowe was selected to create a mixed-use project in an underdeveloped area that offered great proximity to downtown and public transit. Teaming with the District of Columbia, the local community and best of class partners, Lowe created a residential/retail community that anchored the transformation of the Mount Vernon Triangle. Residences feature contemporary design, abundant windows and amenity -filled rooftop terraces with dramatic views. Community-serving retailers include an urban Safeway that was among the first of its kind, shops, restaurants and services.
Twenty percent of CityVista residences provide affordable housing.

With its inviting public spaces and common areas CityVista has become the heart of the neighborhood. Its 2008 completion has been cited as the turning point for the Mount Vernon Triangle, now a thriving and desirable urban district. It was named the Best Mid-Atlantic Neighborhood Impact Condominium Community by Delta Associates, Best Multifamily Project of 2008 by Washington Business Journal, and a Pioneering Project of the Decade by Real Estate Forum.
