“The Armed Forces Retirement Home could be ready to select a team this summer to remake a substantial portion of its 272-acre campus in Northwest D.C., nearly a decade since it raised the prospect of letting private developers build on an unused part of its campus near The Catholic University of America.”
14th Street’s next massive development now underway just south of U Street – signs are up for Elysium Fourteen. Their Facebook page says:
“Elysium Fourteen is a highly exclusive apartment residence set in the heart of the 14th/U Street Corridor. This development project will involve the careful renovation and restoration of two existing historic buildings that will be subsequently adjoined to a newly constructed 9-story LEED certified apartment building with retail on the ground floor. Elysium Fourteen is an exceptional residence developed for the most discerning urban tenant.”
“The JBG Companies and Walton Street Capital are excited to announce the commencement of sales at an iconic building in the North End of Shaw neighborhood. The mixed-use residential and retail project is located at 2030 8th Street, NW and features 62 residences offering dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the city. Building amenities include ground floor restaurants, public and private rooftop terraces, a fitness center and a resident lounge.
The building features one and two bedroom residences with over nine-foot ceilings, and interior design finishes paying homage to the structure’s commercial past – when it served as a plumbing supply warehouse. Prices range from the upper $300s to $1.9 million. Floor plans, features and renderings are now available on the 2030 8th Street website.
Interior finishes will be a study in cool, contemporary design incorporating natural finished, hardwood floors, custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Bathrooms will be appointed with floating vanities, floor to ceiling porcelain tile surrounds and full-width mirrors.
The building was designed by the New York-based firm, Morris Adjmi Architects, which has recently completed a number of prestigious projects in Tribeca, SoHo and the Gansevoort Market Historic District in New York, including the distinctive High Line Building and 837 Washington.”
In the last day or so (maybe since yesterday morning), the building on the corner off North Cap and P was completely demolished (picture attached). I think I read somewhere a while ago that it was owned by Douglas, but I could be making that up. Any idea what is going in here? First, Uncle Chips adds alcohol, then DCity Smokehouse beautified itself; even Firehouse is finally opening next week. Does this mean the revitalization of North Cap has finally arrived?”
“This email is to serve as official public notice that Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1B (ANC 1B) will be holding the first of two community-wide meetings to hear the three duly qualified applicant teams who have submitted proposals to redevelop the Grimke site, on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, at the Frank D. Reeves Municipal Center, 2nd Floor – 2000 14th St, NW.
Following the presentations, there will be a community Q & A session. (more…)
