The Notch 8 apartments, named for the railroad term meaning “full speed ahead,” is moving full speed ahead and making progress in Potomac Yard. Notch 8 will be an apartment building with a 70,000 SF Grocery Store (Giant Food) on the ground floor.
Notch 8 is designed to achieve LEED® certification and features a total of 253 units in a six-story, wood-framed building with amenities including a pool, bathhouse, party room, and green roof courtyard. The community includes 480 below-grade parking spaces across three levels with designated electric vehicle charging stations.
Above you can see that the construction crew is nearly done with the first floor.
Notch8 is part of The Exchange at Potomac Yard which is a 1.9 million-square-foot development with a planned 800,000 square feet of office and hotel space, 100,000 square feet of retail, 1,700 units of residential, and a new Metro station.
