We recently learned that the vacant shell of a building at 1515 Rhode Island Ave NE will be transformed into a new apartment building called “The Violet”. We have been following the tweets of the development company carrying out the project, The Jocelyn Group, and by now demolition is complete and they are getting ready to lay the concrete foundation. The 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath units will rent for $2,400.00. From the development’s website:
Beautiful brand new luxury apartment units, most with private outdoor space to be completed end of 2016. Units will feature high end finishes with a modern look. Hardwood floors, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances…Garage parking available…Large common roof deck using native plants giving the property a positive environmental impact and green feel.
