Washington Building Congress (WBC) selected Chapel Valley Landscape Company as the 2019 Craftsmanship Award winner in the Sitework category. The award is presented for their work at the OvS-designed 700 Penn project located adjacent to Capitol Hill’s Eastern Market. The WBC Craftsmanship Award “recognizes the outstanding skills and achievements of individual craftsmen in our regional construction community.”

The project is designed to incorporate the best principles of New Urbanism and Transit-Oriented Development. The new development is enlivening the community, ensure a more pedestrian-friendly Pennsylvania Avenue and 7th Street, and serves as a hub of neighborhood activity.
