Thanks to a reader for sending the update:
“Things are happening at Bacon Funeral Home! Here is a photo of the outside with new windows. Also looks like they’ve framed out the whole inside and laid down plumbing (not shown). They’ve had crews in there usually 6 days a week so it’s nice to finally see change on the site! Also looks like there might end up being some parking spots in the back once they’re done (think some commenters were wondering about this).”

From a press release:
“DC’s hot real estate market is going to sizzle now that Zusin Development’s (Zusin) and Sivan Properties’ latest residential and retail project in North Columbia Heights has broken ground. Located at 14th and Quincy Streets, NW, this 30,000 SF building combines 3,000 SF of ground-floor retail and four levels of residential space. Zusin turned to CORE, a prominent Georgetown-based architecture firm with award-winning residential and retail/hospitality design practices, to create their latest project.
“We always enjoy working with the Zusin team,” said CORE principal Dale Stewart. “On this project, we are glad to be designing a building that brings much-needed 2-bedroom 2-bathroom units, affordable housing, and flexible retail space to this flourishing DC neighborhood.” CORE previously designed the renovation of 433 Massachusetts Avenue, NW for Zusin.
14th and Quincy Street’s 20 units all have two bathrooms and an in-unit washer/dryer. Residents will share a well-appointed lobby, a roof deck, indoor bicycle storage, as well as underground and surface-level parking. Specific interior design finishes will be finalized later in the construction process.
“The design is a blend of modern aesthetic and traditional materials on a prominent corner lot. We hope its understated simplicity adds value to the architectural fabric of the neighborhood and the retail base provides additional convenience for its residents,” said CORE’s project architect Christopher Peli. “We’ve also included a commercial kitchen hood exhaust shaft through the building in case Zusin has a small restaurant tenant in the future. It’s important to make new-build retail space flexible so that future renovation costs are minimal.”
14th and Quincy Street will have a primarily red-brick exterior with striking floor-to-ceiling glassy, cantilevered bay windows that will maximize views across the city. The building’s main entry and residential bays are accented with rich, dark bronze-colored aluminum panels. A glass canopy shelters the recessed residential entry, which is also surrounded with terraced landscaping.
“Every time we work with CORE, we appreciate that they listen to what we want to do – then guide us through DC’s complex zoning and building process to a successful result,” said Zusin Development’s president Ilya Zusin. “Their deep understanding of how DC works cannot be underestimated.”
CORE is working with Maddox Engineers & Surveyors (Civil), Rathgeber Goss Associates (Structural), and Capitol Engineering Group (MEP) to complete construction of the 14th and Quincy Street project.”
