Lofts 14 Condos, 1401 Church St., NW, Washington DC, 20005
Lofts 14, by Metropolis Development, converted a three-story warehouse and auto showroom of Mott Motors, with a fourth floor added to the original structure, enveloped by a new five-story building for 85 units in the building. Metropolis incorporated historic features such as the original brick, adding a new building that envelops the old warehouse. Newer features include hardwood floors, granite and stainless appliances, common roof deck, balconies, terrace or patio, bike room, storage, and underground parking.
This was the 2nd project for Washington-DC based Metropolis Development, after Langston Lofts, which has focused its efforts entirely on the 14th Street corridor near Logan Circle, before going bankrupt over its handling of the Metropole. This project stretches from 14th St. along Church Street, a one-time industrial strip, rare in Washington DC, that was, within a few years of this project's completion, fully converted into a trendy condo strip. The interior design is very modern, with bamboo floors, floor to ceiling windows, exposed ductwork, and Scavolini Italian cherry cabinetry. Architecture by RTKL, historic incorporation by EHT Traceries. The condominium originally sold out in 2005.
