Earlier this year, UrbanTurf reported on the plans to replace the 7-Eleven at Takoma Metro station with a mixed-use condo development. Now, the project is rendered in full color.

Neighborhood Development Company is seeking Historic Preservation Review of concept plans for a 37-unit condominium project atop 11,960 square feet of commercial space at 218 Cedar Street NW (map)

The 55 foot-tall building is designed by Square 134 Architects and would include 14 bicycle and 12 vehicular spaces of garage parking. The units would be mostly one-bedrooms with some two bedrooms, and 10 percent of the residential square footage would be inclusionary zoning units.

The design has changed somewhat from what was previously presented, with a less prominent and glazed commercial façade and more subtly articulated balconies.
