The Mint in Eckington Now Selling

The Mint in Eckington Now Selling: Figure 1

The Mint, a 24-unit condo project at 4th Street NE and Rhode Island Ave NE (map), has started selling.

The units, which are a mix of one- and two-bedrooms, start in the mid $200’s and go up to the mid-$300’s. The project, developed by PERS Development and is a couple blocks from the Rhode Island Avenue Metro, has a rooftop lounge and fitness center, a shower for sunbathers, and a gated entry and security system.

Ramin Bassam of PERS Development told UrbanTurf that since going on the market last weekend, four units have gone under contract. The 3,200 square feet of ground floor retail will enter the market next week.

The Mint was originally expected to deliver at the end of last summer. Prior to being redeveloped, the building that is now The Mint had sat vacant since 2003 and suffered a fire in 2009.

    Just drove by there and the unit looks real nice from the street. I don't think I would like how busy the street is though.

    There is a reason why they do not use real pictures.

    That neighborhood is definitely in a slow transition. It needs major streetscape improvements to make these one off projects have any cohesive effectiveness. But my big irk with this building is the color. It may read lavender-ish in the picture but it is stark white in reality. It just doesn't fit in with the rest of the neighborhood.

    @Larry - haha, great point. Those digitally rendered people look so friendly!

    Keep driving by if you don't like it. This development is fantastic for the Eckington community. Market rate housing, higher density, disposable income. This means more dollars for retail in the community. Brings 4th Street NE back to life. Down with the haters, down with the liquor stores, up with development. Bring it on!
