New Knolls for Congress Heights


Hartford, LLC and Bryant Mitchell Architects (BMA) will put the finishing touches on the Knox Hill Village subdivision next year with 16 new, affordable townhomes. Entitled Hartford Knolls, the project constitutes the final phase of development for the Village project that consists of 109 homes built between 1994 and 2001.

Currently the site of site of a 32,000 square foot vacant lot, the parcel on the 2800 block Hartford Street SE will soon house 16 3-bedroom, 3-bath garage-centric townhomes. Hartford and BMA are betting that the Knolls’ proximity to what they have deemed the “Alabama Avenue Renaissance corridor of Anacostia,” the Congress Heights Metro and the planned redevelopment zone of St. Elizabeths Hospital will make an easy sell in tough housing market. Prices are planned to start at $309,990.

According to Melvin L. Mitchell, Managing Partner of Hartford, LLC and CEO of BMA, the development received DC Board of Zoning Adjustment approval in April 2007 and expects building permits to be granted before the end of the month. The first homes are expected to deliver in the spring of 2009.

Is it just me or do the angles look all funny in the first image? I think the graphic designer forgot the rules of perspective.

i'm glad you guys have "anacostia" in quotes in the description of the alabama avenue corridor, but you shouldn't have put it in the tags. like dg-rad said, this ain't in anacostia. it ain't even close.

Yes, the first image looks really odd. I don't know if it's the designer's fault though.

There is no way the garages should be so prominent in this day and age.

For what it's worth, here's the tull quote from the developer: "The project is in the Congress Heights sector of the Alabama Avenue Renaissance corridor in Anacostia."

this is why idiot developers need to get the h out of this part of town before they ruin its potential.

if they don't even know where they are building, they don't give a sh about the community.

I don't care what they call it - but its ugly, ugly, ugly. Shame on the developer, and on the city for approving this kind of crap.

DG-rad on Nov 17, 2008, 11:57:00 AM said...

if so, those houses in the vicinity look like crap.

if you are the developer: please redesign using an actual architect. we have no interest in this trash east of the river.
