11th and M Project
Here is a little more from the Washington Business Journal/Urban Turf
I spoke to the developer a few weeks ago who was hoping to get started in November but was still waiting on some DC Government Building permit
Here is the WBJ Link from Urban Turf with a picture of the approved building design - note the corner laundry building in not included in the project: http://dc.urbanturf.com/articles/blog/71-unit_project_at_11th_and_m_aims_to_deliver_in_early_2016/9166?utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=Thursday+October+30th%2C+2014&utm_medium=headline
Community Three Development’s 71-unit condo project planned for the northeast corner of 11th and M Street NW (map) will start construction soon, according to the Washington Business Journal’s Michael Neibauer. Community Three aims to deliver in early 2016.
UrbanTurf first reported on the large residential project in February 2013, and it was approved by the Historic Preservation Review Board a few months after that. The development will have underground parking as well as a retail component on the ground level.
Community Three will be developing their project on the parking lot to the north and east of the laundromat at the address, wrapping around the existing building.
Architect Torti Gallas created a design of two distinct buildings: a six-story structure fronting 11th Street NW, and a nine-story building fronting M Street NW. The 71 units will be distributed throughout the project, which will feel like one building on the interior. The design was inspired by the rowhouses and classical apartment buildings that fill the neighborhood.
