  • I like the looks of this building, an updated look to a traditional DC style, certainly consistent with the neighborhood

  • LOOOOve it.

  • Potentially another sad attempt to “look old so that we don’t offend anyone”…

  • Or maybe “look so old that it fits with the context and character of the neighborhood”. This sort of thing, if it succeeds, should be applauded.

  • Lake Woodson is no longer and for someone who lives within a few blocks of this…I am good with this or any other building that is not boarded up along 9th Street!

  • Do they have a website? Pricing for the units?

  • Prince Of Petworth

    I’ll go back and see if I can get some more info.

  • I’ve been watching progress on this building for a while, but this post is the first time I’ve seen a rendering. Definitely in context with the rest of the neighborhood, but its missing a certain something. Maybe its just a little plain? New buildings never have the brick detail work that the old ones do. That’s why I think we should just be building contemporary. Neo-traditional buildings never look as good as the old ones, so why keep trying?

  • I think often people don’t realize that developers seriously have their hands tied when it comes to being innovative when building in a historic neighborhood. I think these builders did an amazing job putting together something that looks modern and sharp, but still fits in with the character of the block.
