New animation has been released for the 35-40 unit condo project which will be located on the site of the Exxon station at 1827 Adams Mill Road (map). The animation, courtesy of Capital Pixel, gives a better sense of the project’s size and scope than previous renderings. It can be viewed here.

As UrbanTurf reported back in February, the planned project, from Perseus Realty and PGN Architects, will break ground in the fourth quarter of 2013 and deliver in the beginning of 2015. In addition to between 35 and 40 residences, it will have 8,600 square feet of ground floor retail and 24 underground parking spaces. Sales will be handled by Urban Pace. The site is currently leased to an Exxon station.

The new development is just one of several on the boards for the neighborhood. Others include:

  • A 40-unit new condo project from Altus Realty Partners, Federal Capital Partners and PGN Architects planned for 2337 Champlain Street NW (map). The project is aiming to deliver in early 2014.
  • A 117-unit residential development will be constructed in the parking lot adjacent to the Dorchester House at 2480 16th Street NW (map).
  • Adams Investment Group is renovating and converting an approximately 200-unit residential project down the road from the Dorchester House project.

    Excellent! another mid-sized multi-family project that looks identical to every other new medium-sized project in the city. I live one block from this site and, while the Exxon station isn't exactly beautiful, this new building (according to newly released animation) does no justice to the site. It does not fit in with the historic character of the immediately surrounding blocks whatsoever and looks like the R-B corridor just expanded into Adams Morgan/Kalorama.

    Agree this is no standout but it could be a lot worse. People want to live here but rents are insane. Its close to the redline and It does away with a few curb cuts, improving the pedestrian experience. I dont think people need to Nimby this to death because it's generic looking.

    My thoughts exactly, Johnny. Hopefully the ground floor retail serves the neighborhood well.

    I'm so excited! Another new building project filled with rooms I can't even dream of affording on my pretty decent salary. When I first moved to Adams Morgan in 1980 I payed $90 for a room in a townhouse. Of course in those days, folks didn't want to live there. Now that it's party central, all bets are off.

    OMG! This was so much better when it was a crappy gas station. If only the developers could have been more considerate and built a historically accurate Peoples Drug or maybe a Woodies or at least a non-chain starbucksy coffee shop where I can read my poetry in peace. While we're at it, can we ban Adams Morgan residents from making more than $50k? My rent is too high.
