1601 5th Street, NW
I wonder if you know what’s planned for the corner of 5th and Q N.W.? A new “Ditto Residential” sign went up recently. I recall perhaps a year ago some discussion of a small condo building?”
The developers respond via email:
“Developers Greg Brennan and Ditto Residential are proud to announce the construction of a 10,000 SF, 4 townhouse project in the hot desirable area of Shaw at the corner of 5th and Q Street. Given the fact that this corner is not historic, they will be razing the existing structures and starting from the ground-up. Each unit will be approximately 2,500- 4 bedroom/4 1/2 bath with rentable “in-law” suites in the lower levels. Outdoor terraces off each main living space along with over 500 SF of roof terrace makes these condo’s one of a kind. Underground parking for each unit. The developers are working with local firm McGraw/Bagnoli to create a brick/glass exterior and several designers to implement top of the line finishes for the interiors.
The property was purchased back in July 2013 and we are starting to break ground this month. Units should be ready for sale February 2015. TTR/Sothesby/s will be handling the outsales. This is an opportunity to own a property that has been built and designed from the ground-up in an area that is seeing unparalleled growth.”
Ed. Note: previously a rendering was posted here that was actually for a different project and has since been taken down.
