Today in Pictures - JBG's District Apartments



JBG announced in January of 2011 that it was moving forward on District Condos, which later became District Apartments, with new partner Grosvenor.  The pair started work a few weeks later on their 125-unit, Shalom Baranes designed building, on Logan Circle's trendy 14th Street.

18 months on, the project is nearing completion.  JBG incorporated the former AIDS clinic at the southern end of the lot for additional retail that will wrap around the corner of S and 14th Streets. The Chevy Chase developer teamed with Toronto-based Cecconi Simone Inc. for interior design, in a building that will have smallish, mostly 1-bedroom apartments.  Occupancy is expected to begin around the end of the year.

I take offense at your comment about the southern part being a former "AIDS clinic". It was a clinic. Your unfortunate reference has the distinct possibility of casting a pall over the whole development.

Cram it with walnuts, Ken. It's the former Whitman-Walker Clinic, which treated people for many symptoms and illnesses.

I wish the actual building had used the red brick shown in the rendering.

This is DC's hottest area. You could build it in a former NAZI gas chamber and they'd throw down wads of cash to live there. Don't sweat it.

Can't believe they didn't keep these as condos! High-end, smaller units in Logan would have been a huge success.

Referring to the older building as an "AIDS clinic" shows the author's complete ignorance of the services WWC provided and continues to provide. What an ass.

It's a nice building and I actually like the brick they went with. Agree about the condo vs. apts. Condos would've been better and sold quickly.

The statement that the building was formerly an AIDS clinic is true, so wny attack the author for saying it in the article? What is more offensive are the commenters who still attach a stigma to the disease by trying to tiptoe around the fact that it was an AIDS clinic run by WWC. So what? I hope we have learned enough in the last 30+ years to understand that people who move in there aren't going to catch it.

Having lived around the building for 10 years, everyone refered to it as an aids clinic casue it's a lot easier than the full name so spare us the fake outrage. As for the brick color change, couldn't agree more. It looks flat and banal with out that color punch. Too bad but it will still add to 14th street's growing vitality.

Wow, the brick color really is disappointing. I'm not a huge fan of brick anyway, but red would have been the way to go here.
