Factory 202


Factory 202 (the splashy new name for what's been known as the Gun Assembly Building or Broadside Mount Shop or Building 202) was originally built in 1941. It is being co-developed by Forest City and PN Hoffman as a 271-unit condo building, again with two floors added on top, and could be completed in 2011. (3/07)

Two views of what the renovations of Factory 202 may look like, specifically showing the two floors added to the roof and the glass-enclosed atrium inside the building. Designs by SK&I Architecture Design Group.



The eastern side of Building 202 finally came into view from M Street east of Fifth in summer 2008, when a hole was punched in the historic brick wall to make way for the eventual 5 1/2 Street, SE. Building 74, at left will eventually be redeveloped into townhouses. (8/24/08)

Although the Federal Protective Services has now moved out of Building 202, some evidence remains. (10/29/08)
