Work has restarted on one of the longest stalled residential projects in DC.

Capital Hill Oasis, located at 12th Street and K Street NE (map) in Trinidad, started going up way back in 2005. The developers planned for ten luxury, five-bedroom, four-story townhouses with elevators, intended for well-heeled buyers.

They also planned a second phase of 16 condos. Though construction was progressing, a series of unfortunate events, well documented by Frozen Tropics, eventually led to the foreclosure of the property. (The events included digging out the foundation in such a way that the wall of a neighboring building collapsed, eventually leading to a fire in that building.)

Since then, the fenced-off project has been an eyesore. But now, reports Housing Complex, Premier Bank (which owns the property) has obtained permits and started construction about a month ago. They hope to be able to deliver the units in either July or August.

Trinidad has proven this year that it can attract high-end buyers. We’ll keep you updated as this project moves forward.
