Jackson Place Flats To Have First Open House Saturday

Many neighbors have watched the Jackson Place Flats development start taking shape this summer. Located at the corner of 12th and Jackson Streets NE, the development will consist of 34  contemporary two bed, two and a half baths condo units. We reached out to the Jackson Place Flats team, here is what they had to say:

The first units will be delivered Friday October 30th and the prices start at $439,000 and go up to $529,000. Condo fees are $195 a month. Lastly, we recommend you make an appointment with Ashley Johnson who can be reached at 202-520-5133 on Saturday September 12, which is our opening day of the sale’s office.

Also, they will be having their first open house this Saturday per this tweet below.

Hat tip to our good friends at Elevation Media DC for publishing this update on the Jackson Place Flats development. According to the article, the project is slated to be completed in September 2015, but will start selling units soon, when they have completed units to use as examples. The condos units will range in price from $470,000 to $530,000.

For a re-cap: each condo unit will have 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and will be two floors each – one floor for living and dining and another for bedrooms and baths. There will also be an option of terrace or penthouse units, with the penthouses coming with a roof deck. You can see the floor plans for these units here. The development is advertising high-end finishes such as granite counter tops and will also include gated parking. The development is located at 12th and Jackson Streets, NE.

 

Brookland In Photos – Neighborhood Transformation

It’s been a while since we did a “Brookland in Photos” post. Actually too long. When we started the blog over two years ago (!!) one of the driving concepts behind it is that we saw the neighborhood transforming before our eyes (for better, or for worse), and we felt a need to document that. As life’s  demands and circumstances have ebbed and flowed, it has been harder to meander the streets of our neighborhood and take photos like I used to, and I regret that. But, I digress, here is a pic of the transformation going on at the corner of 12th and Jackson Streets NE. Three longtime businesses have relocated, and a  small apartment building and an empty lot have all made way for the new Jackson Place Flats development, which will bring 34 condo units to Brookland. To see what this corner used to look like, check out our blog post from December 2013.

Jackson Place Flats Development Issued Raze Permits

In February we posted an update about the new development coming to the corner of 12th and Jackson Streets, NE. At the time a representative told us that they would be breaking ground in March. So far, one building on the property has been razed and some foundation work is being done where it stood. But other than that, there hasn’t been much activity. That may soon change. We learned that on June 25th, DCRA approved the demolition of the remaining buildings on the site. For a re-cap: The  development plans call for a 34 unit housing development called Jackson Place Flats. Each condo unit will have 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and will be two floors each – one floor for living and dining and another for bedrooms and baths. There will also be an option of terrace or penthouse units, with the penthouses coming with a roof deck. You can see the floor plans for these units here. The development is advertising high-end finishes such as granite counter tops and will also include gated parking.

Update – Jackson Place Flats Development

In December we posted about a new development coming to the corner of 12th and Jackson Streets, NE. The  development plans call for a 34 unit housing development called Jackson Place Flats. We recently noticed that the future construction site is now surrounded by fencing, so we reached out to the development team to see if they had an update. They responded “As of right now I can let you know that ground breaking is planned for March 1, with the first units becoming available hopefully in November of this year.” Wow!

Two New Brookland Developments Inch Forward

Development site at 10th and Kearny.
Potential Oxbridge Development site at 9th and Kearny.

In early November we posted about a meeting to introduce a development project from Oxbridge Development for the property they purchased on 9th street between Kearny and Lawrence, Streets NE. This is the strip of green space that runs along the Metro tracks that many people use as a de facto dog run. From what we have gathered, Brooklanders who attended that meeting thought it was a reasonable development that would fit in with the existing neighborhood. Recently Oxbridge Development submitted a Notice of Filing application of a map amendment to the DC Zoning Commission.  The map amendment application seeks rezoning of the property from a commercially zoned property to a residential zoned property. The developers are seeking an R-4 Zoning, which would cap the development at 3 stories, or 40 feet tall, and it is clear from the filing that they intend to build “moderate density” attached rowhouses. We uploaded the Zoning change application as well as some other pertinent documents here.

 Neighbors living near the corner of 12th and Jackson NE have been wondering what will happen with the four parcels of land that sold this summer for $1,825,000. Since the sale, land surveyors have been analyzing the property and longtime Brookland businesses Classic Art of

12th and Jackson, but we can’t imagine that someone would spend almost $2 million dollars on a significant chunk of land that they do not intend to build on. Perhaps the biggest sign that a development is coming happened recently when a raze permit application was filed by Stanton View Development for the building at 1200 Jackson Street, NE, which is owned by a company called Jackson Place, LLC. While the building was not sold with the other 4 parcels, the listing for the parcels indicated that it “can be priced separately and made available in the near future” to complete a contiguous lot of land. Up until recently the building housed three rental units, but we haven’t been able to find

any signs that it has been sold. As an aside, properties along 12th Street are commercially zoned and any development would be limited to 50 feet in height automatically, according to the Brookland Small Area Plan. (Of course, a developer could always seek to build higher as we saw with the 901 Monroe development.)

We will keep you updated on any news regarding these developments as we learn them.
