Washington Business Journal  May 21, 2013 

Monday was a busy day in permits. Read on for news about new H Street NE condominiums,

  • 1115 H St. NE: A permit was issued to 1115 H Street Partners LLC for construction of a $3.5 million, five-story mixed-use building with 8,186 square feet of first-floor retail and 16 residential units on the second through fifth floors. The project, from Wall Development Group LLC and Square 134 Architects, will be designed to achieve “Lead Platinum” certification (I assume they mean LEED), according to the website, with condominiums starting in the $300,000s. This is D.C.-owned property, and Wall Development is the city’s selected development partner.

Town Square | H Street corridor condos near completion

 January 20

Wall development has nearly finished building 16 condos at 1115 H St. NE, a five-story mixed-used community on the site of a former Woolworth store in the trendy H Street corridor.

Designed by Square 134 architects to achieve LEED certification, the building includes environmentally friendly features such as a green roof with a rooftop deck, triple-glazed energy efficient windows, covered bike storage and wiring for electric car charging stations.

In addition, each resident will receive a transit package featuring complimentary one-year ZipCar, car2go and Capitol Bikeshare memberships and pre-loaded SmarTrip card with the purchase of each unit. The new H Street streetcar will provide an additional transportation option for residents, who can also walk to dozens of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.

The 654- to 665-square-foot, one-bedroom and one-bathroom condos are priced from the mid-$300,000s. They are being marketed as “starter condos” that can be less costly than renting an apartment. The units have sound-attenuating construction, hardwood flooring, ceramic tile baths and kitchens with espresso cabinets, stainless steel appliances and recycled glass counters.

Zoning Approves 9-Unit Shaw Development in Former Halfway House

A project to turn what used to be a 40-bed halfway house in Shaw into a 9-unit luxury development can move forward after receiving approval from the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) on Tuesday.

Developer Lock7 can move ahead with its project at 1514 8th Street NW (map), once owned by the Efforts for Convicts Foundation, which ran the halfway house for 35 years, closing in early 2014.

Lock7, which is working with Square 134 Architects, had requested variances related to lot area, lot occupancy, nonconforming courts and compact parking spots on the property. The BZA granted those variances in a short hearing.

The developer is planning to build studios, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms and three-bedrooms in the building, ranging in size from range in size from 384 to 1,226 square feet. Lock7 hopes to deliver the units in 2015.
