“701 2nd Street will deliver an unparalleled level of amenities and services providing its residents not just an apartment, but a lifestyle that’s as vibrant and exciting as the surrounding Capitol Hill/H Street neighborhood,” said Fisher Brothers partner Winston Fisher. “Whether it’s relaxing at the building’s rooftop pools and cabanas or discovering a new area chef at one of the tasting events, residents need not leave their home for entertainment, discovery and excitement. From the exquisite interior finishes and design, the convenience of its central Capitol Hill to H Street location, the building is tailor-made for the urban resident who seeks convenience to work — and all conveniently located in a neighborhood hosting Washington’s newest restaurants and burgeoning retail corridor.”
