Adams Morgan will get another condominium project - likely within the next two years - on the now vacant lot at 2337 Champlain Street. Federal Capital Partners (FCP) purchased the property yesterday and plans to build up to 40 units on the site.
The fully-entitled residential development site, adjacent to the adaptive reuse project (at 2329, 2335) (currently seeking a new owner) will be developed by FCP in conjunction with Altus Realty Partners. Of the sale, Altus principal Charlie Kehler said, "[w]e’re really excited, it’s one of the last infill sites on Champlain Street."
"We’re going to try to bring this to market as soon as we can,” stated Kehler, of the project which aims to begin construction in the spring of 2012. "We're interviewing architects [currently]." Once selected, the chosen architecture firm will design a complex offering "somewhere between 36 and 40 units, that will range from 500 to 900 square feet."
Of the location, Kehler added, "It's proven to be a strong market." He expects the condos to command "$550 to $600 per square foot." The $3.55 million sale was brokered by Scott Frankel of CBRE and Bruce Levin of MAC Realty Advisors. According to DCRA, WWYP LLC had purchased the property in June of 2005 for $1.9 million.
FCP is a local real estate investment company with over $2 billion in assets acquired since 2003. Altus operates out of Arlington and invests primarily in the greater-D.C. area.
