With two developments underway, Borderstan residents can expect big changes at the 14th and T Streets intersection this spring.

According to a hanging construction sign, the lot of the former historic Post Office at 1407 T Street NW will soon transform into a 7,000 square feet two-story retail and office mixed-use building, featuring two popular DC eating establishments, Taqueria Nacional and BakeHouse. New Legacy Partners is the development firm working on the 14th and T Street site.

Taqueria Nacional, currently located at 400 North Capitol Street NW, will bring quick and casual, yet authentic, Mexican taqueria-style cuisine to the area. Meanwhile, Bakehouse will add to the neighborhood’s coffee and bakery scene.

On the east side of 14th Street (between T Street and Wallach Place NW), Level 2 Development is working on a mixed-use apartment community, featuring 144 studio and one-bedroom rental apartments. The new apartments will offer the following features:

  • A roof deck with grilling stations
  • A fitness Center
  • Eco-conscious building materials

A listserv message on Jim Graham’s website also reports that three retail outlets have signed a lease for the forthcoming Level 2 building, which will be completed by the end of 2013. According to the post, “the retailer on Wallach Place will be Universal Gear a clothing shop moving north from 14th and Q Streets NW.”
