More details of the extensive redevelopment for the land surrounding Brookland’s Redemptorist building were filed this week in a planned-unit development application from developer Madison Homes.

The 41 townhomes planned for 3112 7th St NE (map) would surround the Holy Redeemer College, a 30-room building which houses clergy and religious studies graduate students. Here’s a map of the planned development:

The 1,600 to 2,600-square-foot townhomes would each have four stories and two to three bedrooms with built-in garages. The Redemptorist building would retain its front lawn but open space to both the north and south of the property would be occupied by rows of townhomes. Five of the townhomes would be affordable, with two slated for individuals making up to 80 percent of the area median income and the remaining three for those making up to 50 percent of area median income.

    I'm 100% in support of this idea generally, but... 2 bedrooms in a 4-level rowhouse? That makes no sense at all. Are some of the houses going to be subdivided into 2-level condos or something?

    Any word (or guesses) on pricing / timing? I'll say 800k+ and 2017. Madison Homes "Eleven Oaks" in Fairfax runs 800-1.1 million: http://mcwilliamsballard.com/properties/eleven-oaks/

    I reside in the apartments that sit on the side, in front and behind of these units and since this neighborhood has been building itself up it is no longer a quaint, quiet piece of the city. The traffic is a mess, the dog owners are messier than the dogs and it just bad. I feel like all the money developer are spending on building $800,000 homes they could use to help the city do for the homeless.
