Wed. morning there was a ceremony announcing the launch of this new project. Was it worth getting completely soaked? No, but I am excited about the project. I think it’s going to inject a lot of life into this section of 14th St.
So, what do you think of the rendering? Think it’s a good fit for the 14th Street corridor?
Details from a press release:
The JBG Companies and Grosvenor announce plans for a premier mixed-use residential and retail development.
Located in the heart of Logan Circle, the new glass, metal and terracotta structure will incorporate the historic building that once housed the Whitman-Walker Clinic. It will span the entire block of 14th Street NW between S and Swann streets NW. Construction on the project is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2012.
The development was designed by Shalom Baranes Architects, one of the area’s most prolific designers, known for its innovative style and extensive historic preservation experience. When completed, the building will be seven stories and will offer 125 sleek condominium residences. The renowned Toronto-based interior design firm, Cecconi Simone Inc., selected all of the building’s interior finishes and designed the unit layouts and all common area spaces, including a lobby lounge, fitness center and extensive rooftop terrace. Building features include a glass and terracotta façade with balconies and private unit terraces. An elaborate rooftop terrace amenity area will feature outdoor living rooms, an outdoor kitchen and bar, a fire pit, water feature and a sundeck. The first floor will have 18,000 square feet of retail space.
