1331 Maryland Avenue has been honored with ENR Mid-Atlantic’s award for the Best Project in Specialty Construction for 2020. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, 1331, is RAMSA’s second residential building in Washington, DC. The building occupies a gateway site highly visible as one enters Washington DC from the south on the 14th Street Bridge. 1331’s complex triangular site, located where 14th Street meets Maryland Avenue, completes a critical missing piece of the Portals Master Plan. The building’s massing and detailing take inspiration from the stately streamlined classical buildings of the early twentieth century built in this neighborhood.
