WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Oct 2, 2012) - McWilliams|Ballard announced today that it has completed sales and settlements for Capitol Hill Tower, a 344 residential co-operative community located in the Navy Yard/Ballpark neighborhood of Washington, DC. Developed by The ValHal Group, a New York based real estate development company, Capitol Hill Tower was the first large-scale multi-family community to be delivered in the emerging Navy Yard and Ballpark neighborhoods of the city.

Capitol Hill Tower, originally planned and financed as an apartment community with a Government backed HUD loan, was converted to a co-operative ownership model while under construction due to strong demand for for-sale housing in the mid 2000s. Despite the later downturn in the nation's economy and the slow-down in the housing market, Capitol Hill Tower continued to sell well due to its attractive price points, premium finishes and prime location in the heart of one of DC's newest emerging neighborhoods. Located just blocks from the Washington Nationals Stadium, the Department of Transportation's main headquarters and Downtown DC, Capitol Hill Tower attracted those buyers looking for attractive price points and quality housing in what is quickly becoming one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city.

"Due to HUD loan financing, the for-sale exit strategy for Capitol Hill Tower as well as other communities that we represent is a for-sale cooperative model," says Ross McWilliams, Principal at McWilliams|Ballard. "With McWilliams|Ballard's progressive approach to new home sales, we are experienced in selling various models of homeownership including a for-sale cooperative model such as Capitol Hill Tower."
