Big news for the Logan Circle area… “Wow” is about all I can say–a 32-unit condo building with 3,000 square feet of retail space is going up at the southwest corner of 14th and R NW at 1638 14th Street. Go to the WBJ article for a rendering of the building.
It’s a tiny patch of land next to an AYT auto service center, across the street from the Verizon building (north), the Union Baptist Mission (east across 14th) and Whitman Walker Clinic (on the northeast corner). This intersection is in desperate need of retail and foot traffic.
From the Washington Business Journal:
New Condos To Rise on 14th Street: A corner lot on 14th and R Streets sold for $3.8 million and a boutique condo will grow out of it. The property had been under contract to the buyer, a D.C.-based developer, since April 2008 and finally closed this month.
