Lacey Condos Grand Opening


The Lacey, a new condominium in the U Street neighborhood, will have its first public grand opening party this Thursday, from 6:30-9:30pm. The Lacey is a new 26-unit condominium at 2250 11th St. designed by Division1 Architects and developed by a partnership of Imar Hutchins and Division1. The ultra contemporary project took the place of the empty lot next to the fabled Florida Avenue Grill at 1100 Florida Ave., itself a bit of a Washington institution. The catered event is being co-sponsored by Washington Humane Society.

Condos at the Lacey, now about half sold, start at $319,000 for one-bedroom units and the low $600's for two-bedroom units. The building is strikingly non-traditional, with design features like floating common hallways, glass demising walls that project light throughout the building, an ultra-quiet and hyper-efficient pistonless elevator, sliding glass interior walls, and Italian Snaidero cabinets. Four glass box penthouse units crown the project, featuring multiple private roofdecks with views stretching across Washington DC. Construction of the project, which began in May of 2007 and being carried out by Eichberg Construction, is almost entirely complete; deliveries began last month.

I have seen these personally and they look awesome. I saw some interesting designs in a michigan real esate development magazine from the same designer.

Damn that s**t is ugly; whats with all the concrete, glass and metal. It could have atleast been painted instead of having the gray colour there are to many gray buildings as it is.

I am really intrigued by this development. Seems that the condos prices are "reasonable" considering the housing bust. Glad to see DC is getting some variety in its architecture. I wonder what Frank Lloyd Wright would think.

Too bad it's in the GHETTO. I wonder how many break ins there will be in the first 5 years. It's not worth being a pioneering gentrify-er, in my opinion. For the price, one might as well move to a city where living conditions are hospitable.

Also, a map of how many Section 8 buildings are within 5 blocks would be great.
