Abdo Development is currently working on bringing a residential, restaurant, retail and office space to 1400-1404 14th Street NW — the northwest corner of 14th Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW.

The company is planning for 5,089 square feet of space on the ground floor for a restaurant plus 4,745 square feet in the basement for kitchen and storage, 4,575 square feet on the second floor for offices and an additional 906 square feet of retail space.

The new development (see the artist renderings at UrbanTurf) will feature four levels of residences, located on floors 3 through 6. There will be a total of 30 residential units, ranging in size from 351 to 1,136 square feet. Transcripts on the DC Office of Zoning website detail that the residences will be a combination of studios and one bedrooms.

According to Jim Abdo, the project is now fully approved and is moving forward.
