Located on the edge of the bustling Ballston Corridor neighborhood, The Maxwell is a LEED Gold certified mixed-use that is walking distance from major retail and commercial centers, a metro stop, and on the same block as a grocery store. Its architectural aesthetic takes cues from its context in terms of materials and colors, but does not try to replicate any historical style precedents instead it merely follows a rational expression of its function. The building hugs the street edge in an L-shaped configuration following the geometry of the site which shelters a small internal courtyard for its residents. Leasing and amenity spaces are naturally lit by floor-to-ceiling glazing in their double-height volume at the corner, while mezzanine units wrap the remaining perimeter of the ground floor with 5 levels of stacked flats above. The Maxwell features 163 luxury apartment homes, 2,200 sq. ft. of retail on the ground floor with a state-of-the-art fitness facility. All parking is provided in 3 subterranean parking levels.
