An empty warehouse at 1728 14th Street NW will soon be turned in to a four-story, mixed-use retail and office space.
Elevation Media reports that construction on the abandoned Granger warehouse will begin in the next three weeks and will hopefully be completed by May 2014. However, unlike most developments in the area, Perseus Realty will not turn the mixed-use space into a residential building.
“The area is maturing and has lots of apartments and residences,” Robert Cohen, president of Perseus Realty told Borderstan in July. “Now the local population needs other services, and that is what we are hoping this renovated building will provide.”
Rather, the development will be used for office space. Similarly, the retail space will not be reserved for a restaurant — a trend that most mixed-use developments embrace. Perseus Realty President Bob Cohen told Elevation Media that he is “very excited” that the retail space is not a restaurant.
