Now that hard-hat tours to the spectacular roof terrace have commenced, we can confirm that the new residences at Logan13 will have several spectacular features setting them apart.

One, of course, is location. Situated in the heart of Logan Circle–walking distance from countless eateries, cultural attractions and Metro–the building affords dramatic views of the surrounding neighborhoods.

The other feature that is drawing attention is the widely-available outdoor space residents will enjoy, either privately or in the spacious rooftop terrace for all residents to enjoy.

“Being a half-block off Logan Circle helps us stand apart from everything else that’s going on in the city,” said Craig Souza, Sales Manager for McWilliams|Ballard. “One two-bedroom floor plan has a great bump-out feature where, from the inside of the home on all floors, you can look north and see Logan Circle directly and look south and see down 13th Street. It’s really going to be a terrific view.”

Bus stopping at 1336 14th St NW

Some frequent Metro bus riders and at least one Logan Circle community leader have differing opinions on whether to remove a shelter that covers a bus stop on 14th St. NW.

Members of Logan Circle’s ANC 2F voted last week to ask DDOT and WMATA to consider removing the shelter above the stop at 1336 14th St. NW. Among their concerns was that the stop was infrequently used, and sometimes attracted litter and the occasional loiterer.

Prior to last week’s meeting, a group of residents and a representative from the forthcoming Jinya Ramen bar came before the commission’s Community Development Committee and asked that the bus stop be removed altogether.
