DCmud: Boutique Condos Coming to Dupont Circle

by Mark Wellborn

Rendering of 1737 Connecticut Avenue

Good news is coming for prospective condo buyers in the Dupont Circle area who have been frustrated by a lack of inventory. The only problem is that the “good news” won’t be arriving until 2011.

DCmud is reporting that four high-end loft condos will be built at 1737 Connecticut Avenue NW (just below S Street) with a completion date of around Spring 2011. Not much detail was provided about the condos other than a square footage estimate of 1,800 for each unit.

Long-time Dupont residents will recognize this address as the former home of Italian restaurant Anna Maria’s. DCmud reports that a new restaurant will be coming into the first two floors, and the condos will be on the top four floors. FormDesign group bought the building and will be doing the design.

    Location certainly can’t be beat, although those windows will probably need to be soundproof with Connecticut Avenue right below.

    Sounds amazing but I’m sure the prices will be insane! Keep us posted as more details become available!

    Economists surprised as new-home sales fall to lowest level in nearly 50 years

    Sales of newly built homes unexpectedly plummeted in January to their lowest level in nearly five decades, providing more evidence of the housing market’s fragility.

    Purchases of new single-family homes dropped 11.2 percent in January from December to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 309,000, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. Sales fell in every region except the Midwest, and the raw number of new homes on the market rose for the first time in nearly three years.

    “No sugarcoating these numbers,” Mike Larson, an analyst at Weiss Research, wrote in a note to clients. “They stink.”

    Dupont needs some high-end condos like this. The lack of new inventory in the neighborhood is pretty frustrating.

  1. Lee said at 11:36 am on Thursday February 25, 2010:

    Dupont needs some smaller units, not 1,800 square feet units.  Being this close to the metro, it would be great to have more housing in the area to help fill restaurants and shops in the area, to really revitalize this area and fill in more of a tax base in DC.

  1. Gerard DiRuggiero said at 1:36 pm on Thursday February 25, 2010:

    UrbanLand Company just list a sweet seven unit condo project at 16th and U with awsome one bedroom units & balconies that should be priced between between $350-$375K…Stay tuned to UrbanLandCompany.com for more info (some property details should hit site by tomorrow) Gerard

  1. Jesse Kaye said at 4:22 pm on Wednesday March 10, 2010:

    This should be a great project. I would estimate 700-800/square foot for these units on the low end.
