Last week, the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) unanimously approved plans for a five-story, 54-unit condo project at 1250 9th Street NW (map), right across the street from the Convention Center.
Developer CAS Riegler, who is working with PGN Architects, has been adjusting the renderings for the project over the past few months. In February, they received unanimous approval from ANC 2F regarding variances having to do with height and a few other details. They tweaked the design based on commentary from the committee and the HPRB.

The revamped project looks notably different than what we reported on back in February. The new renderings reveal a brick-heavy facade on most of the building, a modern, glassy corner, and pop-ups set back from the front of the development. A garden courtyard with floating bridges for residents is planned for the back of the building.

The space is currently occupied by the pop-up art gallery Contemporary Wing, and was formerly the event space known as Fight Club. The project will also have a ground-floor retail component, and they hope to start construction in the fall.
