U Street’s Moderno to Break Ground This Week


This week, DC-based Lakritz Adler and Robertson Development are expected to break ground on their newest project: Moderno, a $12.5 million, 15-unit residential building to be located at 1939 12th Street NW, right below U Street. Moderno will consist of the residential component as well as 5,000 sf of ground floor and underground retail, and parking. There will also be two adjoining structures built next to it, each containing two, three-story flats (for a total of 19 residential units in all). Unique features in some of the units will include 19-foot ceilings, Spanish porcelain tiles and Spanish-built cabinets and – seriously - some units will have outdoor showers. One-bedroom units start in the high $300,000s, with three-bedroom units around $1 million. Design is by CORE Architects. Pictured is a rendering of Moderno, though it makes it appear to be located in suburbia rather than the urban infill project it is….

Now now ... let's wait and see. They are trying something different for DC ... a more European design, which - honestly - will be nice to see after years of the same-old cookie-cutter condos we've been getting. Check out the project site to see interior renderings - http://www.lovemoderno.com/ ...

Sales have started - McWilliams Ballard is handling. The project Web site has a contact form and number for those interested.

Incompetent Design.

If the person who so called designed this gem watched the news a bit they would see that another one of these new condos with the cool design was just on the news, because the fire department had to go dislodge ice sheets that were formed on the overhangs that were several stories up, just like this one. Once the ice forms on those ledges several stories up they will come down on pedestrians. ouch!
