The U Street Corridor has become something of a nightlife and arts destination over the past few years. Galleries, bars, and restaurants are popping up all over — for examples, check out our coverage here on PoPville. Word of its rise even made it to The New York Times, who called it “vibrant,” a nightlife alternative for those who were a little older than the Georgetown crowd and had more money to spend. (And that was in 2009.)
It’s no surprise that a booming scene has attracted a wave of condo developments. The Hatton is one of the latest — a six-story building that will feature 91 units, and will be the eastern of two “twin towers” on either side of 8th Street at Florida Avenue. (The western tower, The Shay, will consist of rental units.) The two buildings were designed to be two facets of the same development, and will share a host of communal amenities such as underground parking, landscaped roof decks, a pool, and a fully equipped lounge. (Pet owners will be happy to know that one of the planned amenities is a dog-washing station.)
Sales begin this fall. In the meantime, you can track the building’s progress via their live cam, their Facebook and Twitter pages, and these construction photos on Curbed. To get more information and receive updates about opportunities at The Hatton, sign up here.
