The 4 New Developments on the Boards For Adams Morgan

  • January 9th

by UrbanTurf Staff

The residential pipeline in Adams Morgan has slowed in recent years, and now there are just a handful of projects in the works for the neighborhood along 18th Street NW. 

Perhaps the most notable development over the last year is that Truist donated the former SunTrust bank property plaza to Jubilee Housing last fall. The nonprofit is working through a development plan for the site, which will most likely be affordable housing. For years, the SunTrust plaza was the focal point of debate surrounding a planned development.

Below, UrbanTurf revisits what has happened since our last look at Adams Morgan's residential pipeline.

1722-1724 Euclid Street 

A missing middle development is in the works for a pair of rowhouses located off the main drag of Adams Morgan. Paragon Construction will replace the two homes at 1722 and 1724 Euclid Street NW (map) with a 22-unit development made up of studio and one-bedroom units. Circle Square Cross Architects designed the building. 


Nonprofit Jubilee Housing is currently at work turning the vacant Transcentury Building at 1724 Kalorama Road NW (map) into 25 apartments, an expanded ground floor space for the Sitar Arts Center, and penthouse office space for Jubilee. Bonstra|Haresign is the designer.

The unit mix will include seven two-bedrooms and nine each of one- and three-bedrooms. Two-thirds of the units will be for households earning up to 30% of median family income (MFI) and the remainder will be for households earning up to 60% of MFI. The development is anticipated to deliver next year.


Ontario Place

A block away at 2400 Ontario Road NW (map), another Jubilee Housing development broke ground last fall. This development will retrofit and add to the existing storefronts, delivering 52 apartments, half for returning citizens, earning up to 30% and 60% of MFI.

There will also be a rooftop aquaponics farm meant to yield fresh produce that can be sold to the community and to local restaurants and other vendors, while also serving as a workforce development opportunity for the residents. The abutting King Emmanuel Baptist Church will house another 18 beds for returning citizens.

Brass Knob Warehouse Redevelopment

King's Creek is working to retrofit the granite stone exterior of the former Brass Knob warehouse at 2329 and 2335 Champlain Street NW (map) into a 31-unit project designed by Bonstra|Haresign Architects.

Six of the units will be IZ and the unit mix would span from 428 square-foot studios to 994 square-foot two-bedrooms. Some of the units will have outdoor space and there will also be a fitness center, 16 bicycle spaces, 8 vehicular spaces and one carshare space.
