These days in the District, what isnâ€™t getting turned into a new apartment complex, restaurant or both?
Now, Elevation DC reports that Douglas Development is two weeks away from starting construction on an apartment building on the site of a former 14th Street NW car lot at the intersection of Florida Avenue.
The six-story mixed-development building, planned for 2221 14th NW, will feature 30 residential apartment units, underground parking and ground level retail and restaurant space.
Elevation DC says the developers have not selected a retailer as of yet, but if the space were to be a restaurant, it would be able to seat up to 100 people indoors and 32 outdoors in a potential patio space on Florida Avenue.
