New Condos coming to long vacant N Street eyesore in Dupont near Tabard Inn

1745 N Street, NW

These are the boarded up buildings we’ve been talking about for many years by the Tabard Inn on N Street. Just noticed the signage out front and also a new website is live where you can register for updates featuring ‘The Row’ and ‘The Flats’:

“Situated on a tree-lined street just two blocks from Dupont Circle, 1745N is where historic meets modern, and sophistication and style share a single address. Here, you can tap into the energy of the city or just as easily retreat from it. Hundreds of restaurants, bars and boutiques all around you. Parks, green spaces, and Metro less than two blocks away. Welcome to Dupont Circle’s most inspired new condominium.”

  • unutilized and sad, yes, but eyesore? it’s very well kept up and gorgeous.

  • “The Flats at 1745N”? They didn’t even try.

  • I think they should be “affordable housing”

  • Gonna be pretty noisy there, especially on weekend nights in summer, with the alley behind Midtown and Lucky Bar and Dirty Bar right across the street and the Beacon’s rooftop bar a block away. I live closeby and the noise doesn’t really bother me, but the sort of people who will be able to afford these condos are probably the same sort of people who will be raising a stink about it at every ANC 2B meeting until the end of time. (That said, the ANC, which is also my ANC, is famously unsympathetic to people who buy around there without knowing this ahead of time, and can’t say I blame them.)

    • People who’ll end up buying there are going to be able to afford high-quality sound deadening windows; the developers know this.

      • So will the developers build with sound-deadening windows? Or will they use regular windows and assume that the buyers will replace them?

    • i wouldn’t be too sympathetic to that either.

    I’m just wondering why it’s been boarded up for so long. Dupont has been a highly desirable area for a decades now.

  • It’s interesting, and understandable, to hear the cynicism over this, but for decades, these empty buildings were a symbol of how DC couldn’t get anything right. The reasoning was: if a nice property on a nice block was vacant, there’s no hope for Shaw, Columbia Heights etc. (And by “hope,” I don’t mean gentrification necessarily. I mean something better than zero commercial properties, vacant houses, crack, crime, etc.) Now it’s obvious that these properties were outlers.
