1237-1239 Rear C Street SE
UrbanTurf often notes the lack of true lofts in DC, largely due to the small number of warehouses and industrial spaces that can be given a new lease on life. However, with the backing of creative investors, this blank-slate property in a Capitol Hill alley could be turned into something special.
The red brick warehouse was built in the 1890s and is located at 1237-1239 Rear C Street SE, in an alley recently dubbed Adolph Cluss Court. Aside from a solid-brick partition wall and a few loft storage spaces, the interior is largely empty. A previous owner used it to store classic cars and furniture.
As we’ve written about before, alleys are having a bit of a renaissance, and listing agent Joel Nelson tells UrbanTurf that an adjacent warehouse was transformed into a two-unit loft residence.
The property is zoned R-4, which means that the site can be used for single-family residential uses (including detached, semi-detached, row dwellings, and flats) or projects up to six units, depending on the lot size.** Currently the building occupies 1,770 square feet of the 4,350-square foot lot.
