Construction Fences Go Up for New Condos Coming to 13th and Park Road, NW – Check Out a Rendering


Back in June 2012 we learned this property on the southwest corner of 13th and Park Road, NW would become condos developed by CASRiegler. Ed. Note: In 2010 construction on the opposite corner was delayed when two grenades were found on the site.

CASRiegler’s website says:

“1300 Park road is a boutique condominium building in the heart of Columbia Heights. This location is unique, as it offers the best of two worlds. One world being the quite neighborhood with outdoor bistro tables, and coffee shops. The other being a larger urban center with mass transit and option galore!

One block to the east is the intersection of 11th and Park, which has become the “neighborhood” center of Columbia Heights. The intersection has a variety of coffee shops, bars, and restaurants with plenty of outdoor seating. This intersection is home to some of Washingtons favorite small neighborhood restaurant and bars, including Meridian Pint and Red Rocks Pizza which lay steps from front door of 1300 Park.

Walk one block west and step into the more densely urbanized center of Columbia Heights. This bustling part of the city offers incredible amenities including a Target, several great restaurants, a Giant and of course Metro. Very few locations in the city offer the best of both worlds like this location.

1300 Park will include 5 two-bedroom condominiums, each offering ample outdoor space and large living spaces. The upper units include multiple levels, roof decks and terraces. The lower level units have front decks and private front yards!

This project is being built in conjunction with the Benjamin Banneker Scholarship fund, and Barry Homes LTD. Both groups are ward 2 institutes that have been in Columbia Heights many years raising funds for high school students and in the support of education. A portion of the proceeds from this project will be allocated towards these institutions to allocate generously, as they see fit.”
