303 Apartments Planned For Benning Road Baptist Church Site

The H Street boom continues to spread East. A 303 unit new apartment project has plans filed with the city by Valor Development. The project is currently called The Valvaere and it will replace Trinidad Baptist Church at 1611 Benning Road, NE. This is just East of the prominent starburst intersection where Bladensburg Road, Benning Road, Florida Avenue and Maryland Avenue all meet up.


“This area will continue to be a hot zone for development and remains high on our own attention list,” said Gerard DiRuggiero, Principal Broker at UrbanLand Company. “Announcements like this one are proof of concept on why we acquired our second office location at 1020 Bladensburg Road, NE, just north of the starburst. There’s big things that will continue to occur in this ripe sector of DC.”


The Valvaere will include a fitness center, community garden and 100 space parking garage. Plans call for 2018 construction completion and delivery. The project is designed by PGN Architects.
