Eden Comes to Adams Morgan


DC developer D.B. Lee Development is planning the final architectural details for The Eden, a 9-unit boutique residential building coming soon to Adams Morgan. Designed by Bonstra Haresign Architects and interiors by D.B. Lee subsidiary Capital Design Group, the 21,000 square foot project will feature an underground parking garage. Though the developer has yet to decide whether they will market the Eden as condos or rental apartments, progress on the development is nevertheless ongoing.

"We've already started demolition of the existing townhouses. We expect to be into permit in the next couple weeks," said President Dennis B. Lee. “Once we get our building permit, it should three to four months [until construction]."

At 2360 Champlain Street, NW, the Eden backs up to the Adams Morgan's nightlife strip, and will sit across the street from D.B. Lee's last project, The Erie and a block over from the developer's 2424 Lofts on 18th Street. As a matter of right, the Eden does not require approval from the local ANC; nonetheless, the developer says it is consulting with the community on matters of design and placement.

“We’re meeting with the neighbors to the north and we’ve met with the ANC…and told them what our project is about,” said Lee. “As soon as we get our drawings back, we’ll meet with them again to show them what we’re up to.” According to Lee, the project’s cost is undetermined, but delivery is currently slated for fall of 2010. 2424 Lofts sold out in 2007, the Erie has sold one of its eight units, and sell for above $1m each.

I hope they keep the green/yellow color combo. It reminds me of my mother's kitchen circa 1973.

I'm all for hiring colorblind architects, but really.

Well that's just a sketch, so don't rely on it being the same. But I will say that I've been into the Erie, and those are some of the worst designed interiors I have ever, ever seen. The colors, the blend, the windows, the material choices. Hideous.
