The Buchanan is now Quimby on 23rd!

November 15, 2023

We’re thrilled to announce that The Buchanan apartment community is now officially Quimby on 23rd. Our community’s new identity channels the spirit and legacy of America’s first female certified aviator, Harriet Quimby, and the excitement of 23rd Street’s Restaurant Row in our National Landing neighborhood, now taking off. As Quimby on 23rd, we’re celebrating the velocity of a neighborhood gliding to new heights, while paying homage to our incredible location mere moments from one of the nation’s most iconic airports and vibrant living destinations. You can visit the new Quimby on 23rd website here.

Who was Harriet Quimby?

Harriet Quimby passed her pilot’s license test on August 1st, 1911, making her the first licensed female pilot in the United States. Within a year, she became the first woman to fly across the English Channel. She designed her own plumb-colored, satin flying suit that was rumored to make her green eyes sparkle. Both the plumb and green colors are reflected in Quimby on 23rd’s new branding.

But wait! There’s more.

Our refresh also goes beyond just a logo and color palette. This fresh, new identity compliments the extensive renovations and upgrades that have taken place at our community over the past few years. We’ve renovated many of our spaces, including a luxe new lobby with co-working areas, brand new high-speed elevators, and new contemporary finishes in many of our apartment homes, and fully modernized, high-speed elevators with custom artwork.

Outside of our community, the vibrant streetscapes of National Landing have also taken off, with incredible new hot spots around town like the newly re-opened Water Park and Met Park, plus AmazonFresh, Alamo Cinema & DraftHouse, Long Bridge Park Aquatics & Fitness Center, and more…
