New renderings were recently released for the 87-unit residential project planned for Blagden Alley, which is being called Blagden Alley Residences for the time being.

As UrbanTurf reported in August, developer Altus Realty’s project is comprised of two buildings at 917 M Street NW and 1212 9th Street NW, which are both connected to Blagden Alley.

At ANC 2F’s Design Review Committee meeting in August, the committee recommended that the architect accentuate the differences between the two buildings. In the newest renderings, the buildings do appear to be more distinct, with different materials and design. Overall, PGN Architect’s Jeff Goins told the committee that he wanted the design to “capture the randomness of the alley” by varying the heights and materials of each building.

The Historic Preservation Review Board just approved designs for the two-building project, reported DCMud, however a timeline for when the development will break ground has yet to be set.

    Nice---are those balconies in front in the first rendering? Also, can someone familiar with Blagden Alley explain its appeal? It seems to come up a lot in development news---is it the community, the sandwich shop, the uniqueness and quiet of living in an alley, or something else?
