Mixed-Use Project Brings New Church and Community Center to Neighborhood


WASHINGTON, DC –High Street Residential, the residential subsidiary of Trammell Crow Company, and CSG Urban Partners, have partnered with Meadow Partners to redevelop the St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church site. The Class A mixed-use project, located at 222 M Street, SW in Washington DC, will comprise 221 multifamily units along with a new 16,000-square-foot St. Matthew’s Church and community center. 

The project is the latest development to break ground in the SW Waterfront submarket of Washington, DC and affords convenient access to the Waterfront-SEU Metro station and will be a few blocks from The Wharf development. 

“The redevelopment of St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church is an important project for us,” said Josh Dix, Principal with Trammell Crow Company and National Residential Practice Leader for High Street Residential. “The delivery of this project will build on the positive momentum of the Southwest submarket. We are excited about the opportunity to bring the Church and a new community center back to its original congregation in Southwest, Washington, DC.” 

St. Matthew’s will be highly-amenitized, featuring a large first floor lounge overlooking a one-third-acre courtyard, a dog run, a fitness center with private rooms for yoga and spin classes, bike storage and maintenance room. The project will also include a roof-top pool, lounge and deck, with unobstructed views of the U.S. Capitol Building. The new St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church and community center will feature a coffee shop, a large fellowship hall for community meetings and gatherings, Wi-Fi and computer access for the community, a large multi-use worship space capable of hosting small theater and performance events and a gallery design to feature local artists.  

The Rev. Phillip C. Huber, pastor of the congregation said, “We are extremely grateful to Trammell Crow Company and CSG Urban Partners for their commitment to us on this long development journey and allowing the congregation to reach its goals for serving our Southwest community.”

Construction is expected to begin in Q3 2016 and complete in Q3 2018.
