A New Look For 14th and R

UrbanTurf recently got its hands on the newest and most detailed rendering of the 51-unit Central Union Mission condo project at 14th and R Street NW.

Courtesy of architect Eric Colbert, the rendering reveals a simple, window-heavy rehabilitation of the existing buildings, and set-back additions on 1625 though 1629 14th Street NW. Plans call for 1350 R Street NW, the main address for the former Mission, to be updated, while the buildings at 1625 through 1629 14th Street NW will have additions built on top.

The layout of each condo will vary, Colbert told UrbanTurf, from loft-y condos to two-story duplexes, with a mix of larger and smaller units. No announcement has been made regarding what will occupy the retail space on the ground level.

The previous occupants of the Central Union Mission have moved to the mission’s new location at 65 Massachusetts Avenue NW.

Developer Jeffrey Schonberger first started planning the project in 2006. As we reported in July, the building began construction this summer. Delivery is expected in the late fall 2014.

    I find this quite tasteful. I particularly like the retail portion, as it looks like it will really brighten up that corner.

    $1,000,000 to live in a former homeless shelter!

    No, the previous occupants of the Central Union Mission haven't yet moved to the mission’s new location at 65 Massachusetts Avenue NW. I work right next door to the old Gale School; it's still under renovation/rehabbing. Where, actually, are the former residents of the mission. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Hope the project turns out great. That building served for many many years as a beacon of the great hope that God offers all of us.

    I find it distasteful for these developers to use the name Central Union Mission for condos--hopefully they're changing the name. Because the new use of the building will not help the community at all, just call it what it is: Another Condo Project for Rich People.

    The building was a car dealership many years ago. The condo's should be named after that. 14th street was automobile row, hooker row, now restuarant row. LOL

    Any idea on pricing or when pre-sales will begin? Or the size of units (i.e., how many 1BRs vs. 2BRs?)

    I think the Mission's previous occupants moved to the liquor store on 14th between U and V St. NW.
