Today, members of the EB5 Capital team joined IDI Group Companies in Woodbridge, VA to celebrate the Topping Off of our JF28 project, Rivergate. The Topping Off celebration is a long-standing tradition to show appreciation for the construction workers by thanking them for their efforts. As we all know, the past few years have been full of hardship, ambiguity, and difficulties because of the COVID-19 global pandemic, however, we are proud to say that the project has continued to push forward. Despite the rainy weather, the event marked a momentous and memorable occasion for all of those involved. Just outside of Washington, DC, when complete, the waterfront development will offer 318 multifamily units with a full range of luxurious amenities.

Angel Brunner Joins Yahoo Finance to Discuss 2021 Commercial Real Estate Outlook
“Commercial real estate is going to trail residential because residential leases are shorter. What you have seen is residential numbers plummet in Silicon Valley and San Francisco. You’re hearing about multifamily down 40% in rents. Commercial is going to follow that because commercial leases tends to be five years or more and landlords have the ability to hold the line.”
EB5 Capital’s 1900 Half Street Project Begins Leasing in Washington, DC
Washington, DC – EB5 Capital joins Douglas Development Corporation and PTM Partners in celebrating the launch of leasing at 1900 Half Street, one of the first multifamily developments in Washington, DC’s Buzzard Point neighborhood. The property consists of 453 luxury apartment units, with 17,000 square feet of commercial retail space.
1900 Half Street is located directly on the riverfront, which provides rare panoramic views of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers. The project sits two blocks away from the newly built $300 million Audi Field, home to the DC United Major League Soccer team, and is also within a half-mile of Nationals Park, home of Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals.
EB5 Capital funded $44.5 million from investors representing 16 different countries. “More than one-third of our EB-5 raise came from India,” said Anubhuti Dhand, EB5 Capital’s Investor Relations Manager. “Our Indian investors felt confident and secure with a multifamily apartment project located in this fast-developing neighborhood.”
1900 Half Street is a few blocks away from Dock79, another multifamily project financed by EB5 Capital in 2014. Dock79 is located in Capitol Riverfront, the next neighborhood over from Buzzard Point. Both properties are expected to benefit from new housing demand created by Amazon’s forthcoming HQ2, which is expected to bring an estimated 25,000 jobs to Arlington, Virginia, and is less than a 10-minute drive from both properties. The multifamily project also sits inside of a designated Opportunity Zone.
“Washington, DC is known as a stable safe-haven for real estate investments”, said Jon Mullen, Senior Vice President of Investments. “This particular submarket is completely transforming at a rapid pace and we are excited to be working with one of the most experienced developers in the nation’s capital.”
