Insignia on M Tops Out


Donohoe Construction Company hosted a “Topping Out” celebration for the new Insignia on M project in Washington, DC., on Wednesday, June 8, 2016. This event marks the building reaching its highest constructed point.
Developed by Donohoe Development Company and MetLife, Inc., this $70 million project consists of a 13-story apartment building with 324 luxury studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment units and three levels of below grade parking. The building will have approximately 11,000 square feet of ground floor retail space on the corner of M Street and New Jersey Avenue. Amenities include a penthouse clubroom, a roof deck and pool with views of the Capitol building, the southwest waterfront and Nationals stadium, a second floor courtyard, a fitness center with a yoga room, and direct Metro access.  Insignia on M was designed by WDG Architecture to achieve LEED Silver certification.
Construction of the project began in August 2014 and is expected to reach substantial completion in the spring of 2017.
