The names may change, but the corner at 14th and W Street NW remains hot. It appears the land at 1407 W Street where AB-Urban Development was planning to build The Brandon condominium project has been sold to Donatelli Development, and the company has wasted no time breaking ground on an as-yet unnamed 12-unit building for this spot, with a completion date of Fall 2007. Sales are expected to start late this Spring, with pricing believed to be a bit below the current rates for this neighborhood. With the Union Row and View 14 projects being built across 14th Street and new condos going up the road in Columbia Heights (in addition to all the new retail opening and planned for the area), the 1407 W Street project will join a crowded yet highly desirable field.
