Address: 300 8th St NE Type: Condos No. of units: 42 Affordable Housing: N/A Type of Unit: One-, Two- bedroom Price:$500k - $1M Status: Under Construction First Move-in: Winter/Spring 2019 Developer: Community Three Development, Torti Gallas Architects
Real estate developer Community Three Development is planning on building a complex at 300 8th St. NE. The complex will include 42 condos with one and two-bedroom units. Designer Torti Gallas has been chosen to design the project, which will offer a ground-floor fenced-in courtyard at the back of the building.
The building would include lots of exposed brick with huge multi-light double hung windows. It would, of course, stay true to its historical nature, harkening back to 1870s Italian residential architecture. There are also talks for a top-floor penthouse.
An ANC meeting from July 2016 discussed the future of 300 8th St. NE. Many community members testified against the project due to possible increased truck traffic due to construction when they demolish the existing structure and build the four-story condos. A vote to ultimately support the endeavor was cast.
The development is expected to be complete by the winter or spring of 2019. By making the development a communal effort with input from the neighborhood, the Historic Preservation Office, Community Three Development and architects Torti Gallas and Partners, 300 8th St. is expected to be a premier destination for living.
