Lock 7 Development recently released new renderings of Harvard Row, its latest residential project at 1449 Harvard Street NW (map).

Dividing a Victorian mansion into seven units, Lock 7 has been busy demolishing the interior and re-framing the house; their website has a timeline for the project, and they hope to deliver by April 2012. In the meantime, they’re going rendering-crazy. Having already released the imagined roof deck and the exterior, their most recent renderings show the interior living areas of a few units, and the dark wood and loft-like layouts are designed in a similar style to other Lock 7 projects like The Gracie and The Charles.

The one- to three- bedroom condos will range in size from 700 to 1,400 square feet, and pricing will start in the low $300’s. The priciest units, being offered from the low $700’s, will span two levels and offer access to private roof terraces.

    I live a few doors down. I'm not that impressed - half the neighborhood looks just like that now. I sort of know the old owners of the house - apparently the developer just knocked on the door and offered to buy. The house wasn't even on the market. It's too bad - I hear the inside of the house was still really nice.

    Hi Jon, As the listing agents for Harvard Row, Dwight Mortensen and I are thrilled to be a part of another fantastic Lock7 development. The unit layouts (available at www.harvardrow.com) are a testament to Lock7's commitment to providing high-quality, usable spaces. There will be a lot of original details in the exterior and interior that will survive, evoking the historical architecture of the original home. We were privileged enough to connect the last owners of the home to the developers too. The units will vary from a affordable yet very stylish 2-bedroom terrace level unit to two chic and dramatic penthouse spaces with 2 bedrooms, 2 full and 2 half baths, wet bar and 450-square-foot private roof decks (with no spiral staircases!). All the materials will be top of the line and the light, views and spaces will be stunning. In the middle are one fantastic one-bedroom with a bay window, an enormous 2-level 3-bedroom unit with private outdoor space, and two second-floor properties each with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. We encourage all UrbanTurf readers to visit harvardrow.com for more information and to sign up for email updates as we enter the sales phase.

    The previous home owner bought this house in 1997 for under 200k. This developer knocked on the door and offered them a million dollars to sell. YES, a million dollars. Would you have said no?
