“Dear PoPville,

Wasn’t this supposed to be an Armenian Genocide museum? Anything is better than the current vacant building.”

Back in May we learned about plans for the once beautiful former National Bank of Washington building – no longer plans for an Armenian Genocide Museum – next up restaurant and retail.  Updates when construction progresses and more info is released.

From a press release:

“Boutique developer Pecar Properties is developing two condominium buildings, with a total of 46 units, on former church-owned property just two blocks from the Potomac Avenue Metro station in Washington, DC.

Stone Flats at 1337 K Street, SE and Stone Hill condos at 1345 K Street represent the eastward march of church-to-condo transformation as developers and home buyers seek out some of the city’s quieter established neighborhoods.

Presales have begun for Stone Flats’ ten luxury condominiums, ranging from highly functional one-bedroom homes to a one-of-a-kind penthouse loft with a private sun deck and monumental city views. Residents are expected to start moving in this fall. At the same time, Pecar has started site work for Stone Hill, an adjacent 36-unit condominium building scheduled to deliver in Fall 2017, on the site of the former Mount Paran Baptist Church.
