Burgess Properties began sales this week of the former Taiwanese Embassy as the Duncan Condominium. The building, at the corner of 18th &
R Street in the center of Dupont Circle, was built in 1900. The development received zoning variances in February 2004 and first advertised condo sales in late 2004, but development issues slowed the project. Sales never commenced, and the building has since remained vacant and visibly deteriorated. Prices for the 9 condos will range from $780,000 for a 1 bed, 1 and a half bath condo, to $1.8m; condos are expected to be completed by this Fall.
