1427-1429 Rhode Island Ave, NW
From a press release:
“SIGAL Construction Corporation has begun construction at the Elysium Logan at Rhode Island Avenue, NW. Once completed, the 52,500 SF new construction project will be an eight-story, 32-unit luxury condominium building which is replacing a vacant lot in the 14th Street Historic District.
Designed by PGN Architects and developed by Madison Investments, the urban infill project will feature a mix of 1, 2, and 2+ den units ranging from 550 SF to 2,400 SF with an average unit size of 1,200 SF, providing options for families and empty-nesters looking to downsize. Three penthouse units will feature large livable penthouse levels with private outdoor decks accessed by stairs and seven units will feature private elevator access.
Ground floor units will be slightly elevated from grade, and the entrance steps to the building will extend into the public space on the street creating a stoop echoing the townhouse design aesthetic of the neighborhood. The building will also feature balconies for units facing the alley and a green roof. The below-grade facility primarily will be for bike storage and parking.
The project is slated for completion in Summer 2017.”
