The Shaw neighborhood will take on another development project beginning early next year, this time along the 9th Street NW area.Â CAS Riegler,Â Douglas DevelopmentÂ andÂ CityInterestsÂ are partnering up to build aÂ 64,500 square foot mixed-use building at 1250 9th Street NW.
The project will contain a total of 70 residential units and approximately 8,200 square feet of ground floor retail one block away from the Mount Vernon/7th Street Convention Center Metro station. Additionally, theÂ ground level retail will be able to accommodate two full-service restaurants.
According to an article published on DC Mud,Â the development site includes a lot at the corner of 9th and N Streets (the current location forÂ Old City Green) and a Blagden Alley building which used to beÂ Fight Club DC. The corner lot is owned by Douglas Development, while CAS Riegler and CityInterests own the property around it.
The site is also partially occupied byÂ a three-story building constructed in the 1920â€™s. According to CAS’s website, since the structure is considered to be a contributing historic building, it will be incorporated into the design of the new development.
Just one block north, is the site of the future CityMarket at 7th and O, which will include residential spaces and a flagship Giant grocery store.
Construction on 9th and N is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2013, with a projected project delivery in the second quarter ofÂ 2014.
