Neighborhood Development Company (NDC) will develop the building on the corner of 11th and U Street NW into a ten-story residential project with 25 to 30 units. Details of the new development were outlined to the ANC 1B Zoning, Preservation and Development Committee on Monday night.

NDC will raze the two-story building at 2002 11th Street NW (map) formerly owned by Industrial Bank to construct the new development. The site is one block east of Ben’s Chili Bowl and two blocks east of a proposed 25-unit project from the Goldstar Group.

NDC’s Kevin Brown told the committee that the project is in the concept design stage (see the early sketch of the massing above), but that the developer has already had discussions with the Office of Planning and other city agencies about the project. Brown told UrbanTurf that they expect to break ground on the development next year. The architects are The Freelon Group and Bonstra|Haresign.

Neighborhood Development Company has completed a number of large residential projects around the city, and the firm is proposing 22 shipping container condos near H Street NE.

    This is the kind of "pop-up" we need more of! Slender, relatively tall buildings like this are in such short supply, and they look so good. I'm also thrilled at the prospect of a residential building with only 3-4 units per floor. That fosters the creation of communities and neighborhoods in a way that a 10+-unit per floor building simply cannot. It also helps that the proposed architectural façade designs, though sketchy, are quite promising.

    Oh great, something to rival the ugliness of that building next door. I'm all for the height, but the façade (particularly the massive overhang) is unappealing.
