Rendering of the planned Cluss Alley homes
In 2012, UrbanTurf reported on a Capitol Hill warehouse that looked primed for redevelopment, and that now appears to be what is happening.
OPaL is redeveloping a warehouse in Adolph Cluss Court into a pair of three-bedroom lofts, UrbanTurf has learned. The planned lofts — dubbed Cluss Alley — are named after Adolf Cluss, the architect of the Smithsonian Castle. GPS Designs is the architect on the project.
The interior of 1237-1239 Rear C Street SE
The red brick warehouse built in the 1890s sits at the corner of two wide alleys at 1237-1239 Rear C Street SE (map). A previous owner of the vacant site used it to store classic cars and furniture.

Now, OPaL has proposed to subdivide the 4,350 square-foot lot into two-story homes. Each three-bedroom would include an outdoor patio and a parking space on the main floor, both connected by a sunroom. All of the bedrooms would have en-suite baths in addition to a powder room on the main floor. The developer received historic approval a few months ago, and the project is now going through the Board of Zoning Adjustment.
This is not the only alley development planned in this section of the city. Monarch Urban is planning four townhomes at 1313-1323 Linden Court NE (map). Built on the site of an auto body shop, the townhomes will rise three floors with an additional mezzanine level and will feature period style carriage doors, recessed entryways and gas lanterns, as well as garages, rear patios and roofdecks.
