TYSONS, Va. – (RealEstateRama) — International award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning announced today that AVA NoMa in Washington, D.C., was honored by Delta Associates at the firm’s 21st Annual Washington/Baltimore Multifamily Market Overview & Awards for Excellence program. AVA NoMa won “Best Washington/Baltimore High-Rise Apartment Community.”

AVA NoMa (short for “north of Massachusetts Avenue”) is a new 13-story, 438-unit mixed-use apartment community developed by AvalonBay Communities and designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning. The apartment homes range from studio to three-bedroom units. Community amenities include more than 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities; an indoor-outdoor roof deck with a swimming pool and views of the DC skyline including the Capitol and the Washington Monument, an indoor-outdoor lounge with a kitchen and theater, and an indoor-outdoor fitness center with a yoga and spin studio. The large gym opens onto an outdoor courtyard with additional fitness equipment. The building also has a 24-hour concierge on staff to manage the package delivery system and accommodate residents. The ground floor also includes a dog park and pet spa, plus 6,700 square feet of retail space. AVA NoMa has a cast-in-place and post-tensioned concrete structural frame with brick veneer and metal panel exterior finishes reminiscent of the warehouse district of the past and the modern style of the present.
