Champlain Street Condos Set to Break Ground





One of the very last infill sites on Champlain Street in Adams Morgan is set to begin a transformation into a condo building in the next sixty days.
Presently a surface parking lot, the site at 2337 Champlain Street NW is being developed by Federal Capital Partners, in conjunction with Altus Realty Partners.  Designed by PGN Architects, the first renderings released to the public show a modern steel-and-glass complex that's very much similar to the neighboring condo building on Champlain, such as the Lofts at Adams Morgan, and Adams Row.

"The project on Champlain has not been named yet," according to Karen Widmayer, spokesperson for developer Federal Capital Partners.  "The project will have 41 condos with on-site parking in garage and surface lots.  It's scheduled to break ground prior to the end of the year, pending required approvals."

Federal Capital Partners acquired the site in July 2011 for $3.55 million, from WWYP LLC, who acquired it back in June 2005 for $1.9 million.  The condominium will take up the vacant lot next to the former Brass Knob warehouse, which is has also been the subject of redevelopment efforts, but will not be incorporated into the old warehouse.

To the extent to which these renderings show a project "very much similar" to Adams Row and the Lofts at Adams Morgan, they also show a duller and worse-proportioned version, with a lot less finesse in the details, and fewer details in general. Whatever--it's an obscure side street and the large windows suggest the possibility of nice units. One is advised to save one's efforts for more visible projects.
