Dunbar Place Schedules Start Date



Years of planning appear to be paying off for the for NoMa corridor. As other District projects see their timelines extended ad infinitum in the face of market declines, development in the neighborhood surrounding Union Station are managing to stay on track and spawn secondary projects to boot.

One such project is Thoron Development’s Dunbar Place development, which will occupy the former site of six rowhouses at 1322-1330 North Capitol Street and 7 Hanover Place, NW. Despite receiving initial approval in May of 2008 and projecting a late 2009 completion, Thoron’s Robert T. Taylor now tells DCmud that construction will be underway by sometime in “March or April.” Once completed, Dunbar Place will top out at five stories and offer 29 new condominiums (along with ground level green space and a rooftop deck) to the North Capitol corridor.

Other projects currently underway in NoMa include Northwest One (part of which will be constructed at the site of the recently demolished Temple Court housing complex), the Washington Center’s intern dormitory at Third and K Streets, NE, and the Cohen CompaniesUnion Place at the very same intersection.

I think it is all due to Harris Teeter. They're betting then when the condos finish the Harris Teeter will also be nearing completion and help buck any real estate trend which may still be in the area.

When will this awful urban quilt building typology in DC stop? Here's yet another example of bad architecture getting worse.

I will believe it when I see it. Thoron also has six condos on O street, not one has sold, priced at 300.000.

Wow. Washington is hopeless when it comes to progressive architecture. It is real shame to see that this terrible Las Vegas incarnation of colonialism is still being built in the city.

Just curious but how will they tear the buildings down without block the sidewalk or street along North Capitol beside them.

I dont residents will like that since its the only way over there unless you walk to 1st street or up the eastern side of N. Capitol and cross over on P street.

Also what happen to the underpass in the depiction
