It has been over a year since we last covered the furnished micro-units planned for Blagden Alley, but now we have a better idea of what the project will look like when complete.

New renderings of the 123-unit development from SB-Urban and Rooney Properties provide a clearer picture of the exterior, common spaces and glass pedestrian bridge connecting the two buildings.

Proposed back in 2014, the two-building development would sit mostly along Blagden Alley and partly on 9th and M Streets NW. Approved by the Historic Preservation Review Board last year, the development aims to attract a high-earning, young professional demographic that is looking for shorter-term stays than a traditional year-long lease.

“We’re targeting a slightly higher-income, more upscale, sophisticated tenant than a typical micro-unit might be targeting,” Brook Katzen, formerly of SB-Urban, said in 2014. “Our demographic is single, urban professionals aged 25-35 earning $150,000-$200,000 a year. That income level is based on the fact that these units will be fully furnished, all utilities included.”

Hickok Cole designed the development and Rockwell Group will handle the interior design. No specific delivery date has been set for the project.
