The Shay

Washington, DC

The Shay is a significant, high-profile project comprised of two buildings. The 245-unit apartment community is designed for modern, vibrant living in Shaw, Washington, D.C.’s most exciting neighborhood. BKV Group is the Architect of Record, in collaboration with the Miller Hull Partnership.

These two mixed-use buildings feature ample retail spaces along the streets that enhance the bustling urban activity of this neighborhood. Proximity to two metro stations offers flexibility to residents who choose to live in the city and take advantage of the amenities the city offers. Such amenities include a swimming pool and expansive sun deck, outdoor “living rooms” with grilling stations and outdoor kitchens, and a resident lounge with a kitchen, bar, private dining room, pool table, and media center. Units feature 9 foot ceilings, over-sized stainless steel appliances, custom kitchen cabinetry, and terraced patio/balconies in select units.

The Shay DC has won the 2015 Best of Gay DC for Best Apartment/Condo Building in Washington, DC by The Washington Blade.
