"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.
