Best Residential Development: The Haven at National Harbor

Best Residential Development: The Haven at National Harbor

The Haven started out in 2016 as an apartment community, but developer Peterson Cos. changed course just as the project was about to top off in July 2017 after crunching demographic and sales data for Greater Washington: It would be condominiums instead.

The full-scale conversion was not without difficulty, especially under a self-imposed deadline of completing the project just four months later.

“We compressed what was normally an eight- or nine-month timeline,” says Stuart Prince, Peterson’s vice president of residential. The squeeze was designed so that Peterson “could leverage all the traffic that we generate at the National Harbor around the holiday season” and begin sales in December 2017.
