Former Building Shells Become The Otis and The Redding 1 Bedroom Condos on Otis Place

809-811 Otis Place, NW

Well this the greatest name for a pair of buildings I’ve ever seen. The Otis was a former dilapidated shell for as long as I can remember. Now the Otis website says:

“1 Bedroom homes from the mid-$200’s Why rent when you can afford to own? Available Summer 2013”

Facing the El Haynes school and Georgia Ave

And another long vacant dilapidated building across the street will be called the Redding. Despite the possible accusations of swagger jacking, I think this is brilliant!

Here is the great Otis Redding:
