Thought I could send along some progress pics from the storage container apartments going up on 7th street in Brookland/Edgewood. As you can tell these will be in my backyard basically. My roommate and I are less than pleased at this going up in such a residential area and are confused as to why the neighbors didn’t put up more of a fight? We just moved here in April so we had no idea this was happening. I’m interested to see how/if they plan to make this stick out less on this beautiful street. It’s four levels high. Couldn’t get one from the front because they have the street blocked off for construction today.
I’m all for more affordable housing, but I’m pretty “not in my backyard” about this lol.”
Updates as construction progresses. Here’s a report from NBC Washington:
“on Seventh Street, 18 six-ton shipping containers are being stacked to make 24 one-bedroom apartments mostly for student housing.”
