Foulger-Pratt is building everywhere. It's latest will bring 327 units and retail to Eckington, wrapped by the area's largest park.

Foulger-Pratt is scheduled to break ground Thursday on One 501, a mixed-use development in Eckington that will be partially wrapped by the largest park within the NoMa Business Improvement District. The two — the park and the apartment building — go hand-in-hand. The Foulger-Pratt project, slated for 1.8 acres at 1501 Harry Thomas Way NE, will include 327 apartments, four artist/maker live-work units, 9,200 square feet of retail and restaurants, 174 secure bicycle parking spaces and several dozen inclusionary zoning units.
