While 9th Street NW and 14th Street NW explode with development projects, nearby 11th Street NW has remained more static. However, the potential exists for more robust development.
"The 11th Street corridor has always been zoned for commercial uses," Kevin Riegler, principal at CAS Riegler, who is developing one of the projects below, told UrbanTurf. "While the 14th and 9th Street corridors have more critical mass and an established commercial base, we believe there is a gap in the neighborhood demand that can be met on 11th Street. This is not ever going to be 14th Street, but well thought out mixed-use projects can help to continue to stitch the Logan and Shaw neighborhoods together."
Below, we've outlined a handful of projects currently in the pipeline for 11th Street NW, starting with a bird's eye view courtesy of Google Maps.
Community Three Development has plans to create an 80-unit condo building for the corner of 11th Street and M Streets NW. The project will wrap around an existing laundromat on the corner and consist of one structure that appears to be two buildings, one nine stories tall with yellow brick facing M Street NW, and the other six stories tall and composed of red brick, facing 11th Street NW. The project was approved by the Historic Preservation Review Board in April. Read more here.
CAS Riegler is in the early stages of planning a 30- to 40-unit residential project at 1101 Rhode Island Avenue NW, currently the Diamond Cab building. Right now, the plans call for a neighborhood-serving retailer, like a cafe, on the ground floor, and 14 parking spaces. They will be soliciting approval from the Board of Zoning Adjustment later this year, and hope to begin demolition in early 2014. Construction is expected to take 12 to 14 months. Read more here.
On 11th Street, just north of Q Street NW, the Fortis Companies plans to convert the headquarters of the National Alliance of Postal and Federal Workers into a 33-unit residential project. Two additional floors will be added to the office building, and the units will range in size from 600 to 1,700 square feet. The developers haven't yet decided if the units will be available as condos or rentals. The organization will stay in place until the project moves forward next year. Read more here.
Farther north on 11th Street, Sequar Development is working on The Lima, a 31-unit condo building at the corner of 11th and V Streets NW. The units will be approximately 850 square feet in size, and pricing starts at $449,900 and goes up to $1.1 million. The project is currently under construction and has been estimated for delivery at some point this year. Read more here.
This development, the transformation of three townhomes into a condo project, is slightly off of 11th Street proper at 3413 Sherman Avenue NW. Each townhome will be converted into a two-level, two-bedroom unit with outdoor space, and there will be six parking spaces in total for the project. Read more here.
