PN Hoffman Plans New Condo in Penn Quarter


Following up information first reported this May, Washington DC PN Hoffman has announced preliminary plans to redevelop the church located at 10th & G Sts., NW, into a 140-unit condominium building. The developer will raze the First Congregational Church currently on the site to construct a "super contemporary" building. The agreement has not yet been finalized, leaving details about the project’s design still fluid. No construction or sales dates will likely be available this year. The project is located adjacent to the old Convention Center, slated to become an enormous mixed-use development by 2009. This latest acquisition adds to the 4 large projects the developer is already building in the area, and to several other sizable projects in the developer’s pipeline.

Any idea how they will incorporate the homeless services into the design?

I am also interested in how the soup kitchen will be integrated into the building's design. It will be interesting to see how the condo units are priced as well.

We all know that the homeless sleep and hang-out in the alley between the church and MLK library, and outside of the library itself. I wonder if *any* condominium board would tolerate such activity around their building once it's completed.

The homeless shelter is looking more and more like it just doesn’t fit in at 9th & G. Already, many of the homeless served at the soup kitchen are bussed in from southeast. If the church sold its land at 9th & G, they’d be able to afford a huge facility in southeast.
