According to data compiled by McGraw-Hill Construction, the Washington, DC MSA ranked fourth nationally for new construction starts in 2011. At $8.1B, DC trailed only New York City, Dallas and Houston in new construction starts.

This 92-unit project is anchored by the meticulously restored circa 1904 Gage School which houses 33 loft-style condos. The project also includes two new buildings designed to complement the historic neighborhood and a 70-space underground parking garage.

Long-time residents frequently challenge any reinterpretation that could affect their desirable address and associated property value.
Capitol Hill is one of the oldest residential communities in the District and is also one of the most densely populated with more than 35,000 people in just two square miles. The name “Capitol Hill” is frequently used to refer to both

The Capitol Hill condo project on on D Street formerly known as Congressional Overlook is now back on the market as Congressional Mews. The project features eight units with true Victorian-era styling and upscale finishes.

This project originally hit the market at the worst time and the units languished unsold as the developer was slow to adjust pricing expectations to the changing market. Per MLS data, 23 D Street sold on 04/06/10 for $1.9M to an LLC based in Seffner, FL. Per the DC Real Property Assessment Database records, the remaining six unsold units at Congressional Overlook were sold to a

With the 1500 block of 14th Street in Logan Circle attracting powerhouse brands like Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and TTR Sotheby's International Realty, it was only a matter of time for development to spread southward to the 1400 and 1300 block of 14th Street. While Caribou Coffee was a start, to date there hasn't been a groundswell of development activity on these blocks.
