It is not often that pre-built sections of new homes are seen cruising down DC streets, but that is just what occurred last week.
Two modular homes are going up on Richardson Place, a tiny street tucked away near 4th and R Street NW, and photos show portions of the homes being delivered to the site and later installed in pre-built sections.
The properties at 410-412 Richardson Place NW (map) are owned by Wilbur Mondie. Each has two units: A main residence that can have eight bedrooms and a three-bedroom basement unit. They should be completed in roughly two months.

Mondie wouldn’t comment on the home’s modular construction. Past efforts to develop the property into more units failed when the Board of Zoning Adjustment rejected the project’s application and he withdrew it. Mondie has instead built a by-right development, according to people familiar with the project.
