A new 64-unit condo development is planned for the six buildings that sit to the west of the Tabard Inn on N Street (map), UrbanTurf has learned.

The project from Innovative Development Group and PGN Architects is planned for N Street between 17th and 18th Street NW in Dupont Circle. The proposed development will preserve the six vacant three- and four-story brick buildings next to the Inn, which will eventually house 33 new residential units.

A new six-story building will also be built behind the six existing buildings. The new building will house approximately 31 residential units and have a two-story underground garage with 46 parking spaces. There will also be a large, private interior courtyard that many of the units will open on to.

Those that have followed development in the city for the past few years might recognize these townhouses, which have been boarded up for over a decade. Back in 2010, developer Morton Bender came close to turning the properties into a boutique hotel.

The current project was presented to ANC 2B on Tuesday night, which unanimously approved it by a 9-0 vote, and has already received support from The Dupont Circle Conservancy. We will continue to update you as it moves forward.

    I've always wondered about those buildings, but I assumed they housed black hat ops or camoflogued Pepco transfer station. Nice plans

    @Scott - He doesn't know because like most of the people who complain about the abundance of apartments and condos don't have any idea how expensive and complicated real estate development is. Land and construction are both very expensive and development will only occur if the proper amount of money can be made. Parks and other public uses can only be incorporated if the rest of the project makes financial sense. Otherwise, undeveloped sites will remain that way because no one wants to lose money.

    Development and Density are good things. They make this city a desirable, sustainable, economically-viable and culturally-vibrant place to be. I say let's go for it!

    I like that they don't show the crappy modern design sticking on the back of the building like a tumor... YAY!!

    Crappy modern architecture? No progress for DC. Turning an unused building into something much needed is always a good thing.
