Demolition Complete for Upton Place
December 3, 2021
Last month, Donohoe Construction completed its demolition efforts at 4000 Wisconsin, keeping on track with its projected timeline for the Upton Place redevelopment project. The tear-down, which commenced in early 2021, involved the removal of a set of vacant office buildings, previously occupied by Fannie Mae, and marks the first step in the highly anticipated, multi-year redevelopment process.
“Our entire team worked very hard to ensure that we brought the demolition through on time, especially our field staff, who worked tirelessly and pushed until the very end,” said Ryan Kelly, one of Donohoe Construction’s Senior Project Managers.
Initially developed by Donohoe in 1987, the recently unoccupied office space was analyzed and determined to be a good fit for redevelopment as a mixed-use residential building, due to its convenient location, including easy access to neighborhood amenities and various transportation options.
Located in the Cathedral Heights neighborhood within walking distance to the Tenleytown Metro station, the new Upton Place development will comprise of a six-story East Tower and eight-story West Tower and is set to feature 689 multifamily residences and approximately 100,000 square feet of retail space. Donohoe’s Development, Construction, Retail Leasing (Real Estate), and Facilities Management divisions are working together on this landmark project, set to deliver in the fourth quarter of 2023.
