The six-story, 49-unit condo project from Valor Development and Ellisdale Construction planned for 300 L Street NE that we reported on last year, has grown in size. ANC 6C’s Tony Goodman tweeted that the project will now house 60 condos at the expense of the planned 5,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

Last year, Jeff Goins, a principal at PGN Architects, told UrbanTurf that there will be eight studios with the project and the rest will be one and two-bedroom condos, three of which will be reserved for those making 80 percent of the area median income (AMI). It is unclear if those numbers will change given the additional 11 units. The project is scheduled to deliver late next year.

    looks nice! I'd say this is behind Uline Arena it's not really behind Union Station. 300 L is less than 2 blocks the Noma station, and about 6 from Union Station.

    If you look at the two renderings, you can see why mixed use with ground floor retail is desirable for the pedestrian experience. Too bad. Is the retail market to weak in this area, with all the competion from H Street?

    Lame. I'm glad the building's coming in -- but would have been an ideal spot for some ground-level retail. Wonder if the failure of Zuppa Fresca played into this.

    I interpret this as another indication that confidence (and probably construction financing) is increasing for condo projects and the developer believes adding # of condos will make for a better ROI. Current market is showing signs of more buyers than properties for sale -- multiple offers and sales prices above list. Too bad that retail is being sacrificed -- not just for the pedestrian experience but also for residents to have more options and convenience.

    I was wondering where this Valor is from--looks like suddenly it got lots of projects going on and has been successful in increasing the density. I wonder who's behind this firm.

    The retail if built would sit empty. No demand. Valor is an strong upstart development firm. They are very active these days.
