Insight Property Group began building the Apollo, its massive 431-unit apartment project on H Street, NE, in the fall of 2014. It’s now just weeks away from opening to residents on November 1.
The apartments range from studios priced around $1,900 a month to three-bedroom units for about $4,800. With 65 different floor plans and a few different finish options, the units themselves don’t feel as cookie-cutter as you might expect from such a large complex. SK+I architects designed the building. Edit Lab at Streetsense—the design group behind hot DC restaurants such as Daikaya and the Riggsby—handled the interiors of the lobby and common areas; the Apollo is Edit Lab’s first residential project. Though many of the amenity spaces are still construction zones, they will include a rooftop pool, dog run, outdoor movie screen, and party and club rooms. (The annual amenity fee is $600.)
