Below is a narrative update on the Gang of Three thanks to Douglas Development for providing.  They will attend on the 18th and be able to answer any questions you might have about the development.

Gang of Three update
Scope of Work
Row houses will be converted into one property with a shared address – 1218 9th Street NW.   Buildings will be a mix of office of retail.   Permitting and construction for this project are to be broken into two phases:
Phase I:  Demolition and construction of new assemblies required to reach a 1.5 Floor Area Ratio (FAR). This will include (but not be limited to) permitting and construction of new exterior and interior walls, a new steel structure with elevated composite decks and reinforced concrete foundations, electrical service brought to a new main distribution panel, exterior and interior egress lighting, a fire alarm system, a new sprinkler system, gas and other dry utilities brought to an internal distribution point(s), roof drains and storm leaders, functional restrooms (including a means of exhaust), connection to existing sanitary and water distribution mains, and a mechanical system that includes the necessities required for a plant to be sized for future distribution of the completed Phase II space.
Phase II:  Infilling open floor areas (indicated in Phase I as “Open to Below”) to provide usable and occupiable spaces. This will primarily be a structural and architectural phase and will also include significant fa├žade remediation and restoration.  Since this phase on the construction will be on the 9th Street side of the buildings Douglas Development will have the proper infrastructure in place to handle and protect pedestrian traffic and limit street parking in front of the buildings.
Parking & Traffic
Sigal Construction and hired subcontractors will be using the south parking lot (future Blagden Alley Residences) as a staging area for construction vehicles.  Most of the construction activity for Phase I will take place on the Blagden Alley side of the rowhouses.  We will do our best to limit contractor parking to the south lot and not block the Alley.
