website says:

“1101 Rhode Island ave is one of the last remaining pieces of developable land in the desirable Logan Circle neighborhood. A former parking lot, and home of a taxi cab stand and garage, the site has been razed to prepare for the ground-up construction of 38 luxury condominiums and 3100 Square feet of retail. Architect Hicock Cole has designed a building that is contemporary yet seamlessly blends with the neighborhood and its historic surroundings. 1101 Rhode Island will be positioned as an exclusive luxury condominium in the most desirable neighborhood in Washington DC. Blocks from booming 14th street corridor to the west, and two blocks from the newly thriving 9th street corridor, the location is perfectly situated and walking distance to all the amenities the city has to offer. Construction will begin first quarter 2014 and reach substantial completion February 2015.”

“Dear PoPville,

I’ve noticed that there has been some significant progress in the construction of the Ontario 17 building on 17th and Columbia. Do you know if there’s been any discussion about what retail may go in the first floor of the building? According to the building plans, it looks like there’s room for 5 different outlets.”

I’m hearing the long vacant (and sometimes troubled) properties on the 1300 block of U Street, NW have finally sold. The State of the Union building was listed for sale for $2.2 million back in December. And you guessed it – word is plans are to combine the lots for condos and retail on the first floor. Definitely looking forward to learning more about the plans and seeing some renderings. Updates when/if more info becomes available.
