The Washington Center Breaks Ground for Student Housing Facility In Washington, D.C.’s NoMa
The TWC housing facility will be located on the northeast corner of Third and K Streets, N.E., formerly used as a taxicab parking lot. It is located directly across Third Street from Union Place, a residential complex currently under development by Cohen Companies, and just one block from another residential development, Senate Square and Landmark Lofts.
“We are pleased to see The Washington Center move one step closer to making NoMa a 24-7 mixed-use neighborhood by providing a home for over a thousand young people each year,” said Elizabeth Price, President of the NoMa Business Improvement District.
As a leader in the field of experiential education for the past 33 years, TWC brings students from across the country and around the world to Washington, D.C. for the chance to test-drive their careers and learn applied skills through TWC’s internship programs
