1931 12th Street, NW

I just noticed that the condos, the Wesleon, are finished at 12th and U St, NW next to the Moderno building. And it got me thinking about new architecture around town. We hear lots of complaints about new architecture/buildings that we don’t like however we don’t hear too much about new architecture that we do like. I actually like this one here and think they did a good job blending it with the Moderno next door. So are there examples of new buildings that you guys do like? If so where? And while we’re on the topic – what are your favorite examples of old buildings/row houses and other architecture that you like around town? Are there particular neighborhoods that have especially nice examples either new or old?

For old school I’m voting Dupont Circle, Logan Circle and Capitol Hill, particularly around East Capitol Street.
