Add Adams Morgan to the list of DC neighborhoods where the residential pipeline is trending downward. Besides the affordable housing and temporary housing for returning citizens being constructed on Ontario Road and retrofit into a historic church by nonprofit Jubilee Housing, there may be more one-off projects active in the neighborhood (like a possible alley-fronting commercial kitchen and a completed triangular rowhouse) than multifamily projects.
Below, UrbanTurf takes a look at the status of residential development in Adams Morgan.
In case you missed them, here are the other neighborhoods UrbanTurf has profiled this year:
- The 250 Units Still in the Pipeline Along 14th Street
- The Last 75 Units Headed to the H Street Corridor
- On-Campus and Off-Campus: The Howard University Rundown
Last month, a lawsuit to prevent construction on the 4,000-square-foot concrete plaza at 1800 Columbia Road NW (map) was dismissed. However, it is too soon to say whether the development previously approved for the SunTrust Bank site is still in the cards. Hoffman & Associates and Potomac Investment Properties received zoning approval four years ago for a six-story building with 52 condos above commercial space — but the Eric Colbert and Associates-designed project has been scrubbed from the websites of all parties involved.
Developers Beztak Properties and Foxhall Partners have applied for permits to do preliminary site work associated with expanding the AdMo Heights development via the existing storefronts at 1767-1771 Columbia Road NW (map). The plans add 40 studio units, one of which will be inclusionary zoning, and 7,300 square feet of retail. The completed development will share a combined 31 parking spaces, and there will be a penthouse with club room, gym, and lounge. Bonstra|Haresign Architects is the designer.
Jubilee Housing is still retrofitting 25 units into the vacant Transcentury Building at 1724 Kalorama Road NW (map). Two-thirds of the units will be for households earning up to 30 percent of median family income (MFI), while the remainder will be for households earning up to 60 percent MFI. The project will also include a ground-floor expansion of the Sitar Arts Center from the adjacent condo building and penthouse office space for Jubilee. PGN Architects is the designer.
The 10-story, 172-unit development behind the Scottish Rite Center at 1630 Columbia Road NW (map) is expected to deliver this year. Helmed by EastBanc and Mitsui Fudosan, the development will include an internal connection to the Center and will provide 75-80 parking spaces across two below-grade parking levels. Amenities include a rooftop infinity pool, a courtyard with grills and fire pits, and a fitness center. Grimshaw Architects is the architect.
