Great news for Masseria fans and/orSW Waterfront residents from the Washington Post:

“The chef is still working out the details, but he expects the first floor to include a butcher shop, cheese counter and bakery where patrons will be able to buy fresh pasta and other prepared foods such as ragu. The second floor will house an 80-seat trattoria, an Italian eatery that focuses on the country’s southern cuisine and features an a la carte menu of pasta, antipasti, meats and cheeses. The third floor will include a rooftop bar and private dining space for up to 80 people.”

Stay tuned for Spring 2018.

From a press release:

“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.
