We read on urbanturf.com that the local DC company Lock 7 Development is planning to build a 16-20 unit condo project at the corner of 12th and Franklin Streets, NE. Dave Gorman, representing Lock 7, shared a few details about the design of the condo building:
Each unit will be 1300 square feet and will span two levels, townhouse-style. The developers are hoping to offer private decks and roofdecks when possible. They are considering a retail element or live/work spaces (which explains their interest in demand for such properties).
The project is the latest in a boom of activity in Brookland, and will be located across the street for Menomale, a pizza place that is growing in popularity.
If this project, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014, will be similar to past Lock 7 developments, interested future buyers can look forward to high-end contemporary construction. We are wondering if this development in particular will ignite some interest in revitalizing some of the empty retail spaces on 12th Street. Once more details about the construction start, renderings, pricing, etc. become available, we will post it right here.
