Logan Station Completes Sales



Bogdan Builders' Logan Station officially finished sales with its final settlement last Friday. The 63 condominiums at 1210 R Street, NW, in the Shaw neighborhood, began sales in March, 2006, but most sales occurred after construction completed in August of last year. The new four-story building with a green roof replaced a vacant lot at R Street and Vermont Avenue, and features townhouse style units with private entrances on the first floor, with flats on the upper units.

The project was Bogdan's largest to date. The Bethesda-based developer previously completed the Ivy at Harvard (14 units) and Villaggio (14 units), and is currently putting the final touches on Belmont Vista, a 28-unit building in Columbia Heights. Designed by Eric Colbert and built Bogdan's own construction team, Logan Station was priced originally from mid $300k's, with two-bedroom condos from the high $500k's, and penthouse units in the $700's. Logan Station was financed by Sandy Spring Bank.

Nothing between 12th/13th is really Shaw. I'd say that is Logan if anything. Hence the name.

Actually, that is definitely Shaw, but the boundaries are fluid. It's called by both names.

Sorry, I simply disagree. Shaw is traditionally east of 11th Street. It's two blocks from LOGAN Circle and is called LOGAN Station. It isn't Shaw.

Wikipedia has a pretty good article regarding the Shaw neighborhood. It is actually east of 11th Street except North of S. These condos technically are not in Shaw by any definition of Shaw in the last four decades. It is certainly Logan Circle.

Even the dc.gov website references Shaw as anything east of 9th from Mass to U streets, which is an even smaller geographic area generally given to the Shaw neighborhood.

R Street between 12th and 13th is Logan.

Somewhere I came across a Shaw boundary that followed the original city limits Florida Avenue trailing behind U-Street to about 13th or 14th.

there were maps back in the day that marked Shaw all the way to 14th St...

it's an interesting sign of the times when people choose to argue about what the official name of their neighborhood is. just come right out and say it... living in shaw=bad, living in logan circle=good... hence establishing the logan circle name in the first place. we're all neighbors folks!

When I moved here in the '80's, that neighborhood was called Shaw. Regardless of what maps, developers, or bloggers say about the area, the "Logan" area was much less used than it is today, and that whole area was Shaw. I really don't care, and agree that the definition of a neighborhood will always change, but this area was historically Shaw.

Not according to any maps that are on any website I have seen. The only part of Shaw that went to 14th was north of R Street. This is not in any traditional part of Shaw.

I technically live in Shaw so have no hangups calling it that. Though being only one block off Logan Circle, I tend to refer to Logan Circle as where I live simply because it is geographically closer to it than anything in "traditional" Shaw.

Let's face it, until about three to five years ago, Shaw was a crap neighborhood, loaded with crime and very little retail or opportunity. That has changed. I have no hangups on referencing Shaw, but these condos are NOT IN SHAW. Period. Historical Shaw is irrelevent because any map from the last five decades shows 12th and R as a separate neighborhood from Shaw. I'm not sure how far back you are traveling in time, but feel free to show me any map that references R street between 12th and 13th as Shaw.
