HOK Project Wins NAIOP DC | Maryland Award


The HOK-designed mixed-use project 14th & W won an Award of Excellence at the 13th-annual NAIOP (Commercial Real Estate Development Association) DC | Maryland Awards Banquet.

HOK’s Washington, DC, office received an Award of Excellence from the NAIOP DC | MD chapter in the category of “Best Mixed-Use Project” for 14th & W.

14WYMCA_640The mixed-use development integrates luxury apartments, retail, a YMCA and existing historic facades into a contextual solution on the border of a historic residential district and a growing commercial zone. HOK’s team designed the massing and materials to be respectful of but not subservient to the historic fabric. Massing and details at the corner of 14th and W streets help establish a strong presence on the corner.

NAIOP Maryland/DC’s Annual Awards of Excellence honor outstanding achievement in commercial and industrial real estate. NAIOP is a national organization for developers, owners, and investors of real estate.
