The boom in loft-style condo development that swept through the District over the last 15 years has touched nearly every neighborhood.  Two flavors of lofts are most prevalent, units in re-purporsed buildings that were previously industrial, commercial, religious or school buildings or loft style units in newly-built buildings.

Taking a cue from Soho, Tribeca and Chelsea in New York, DC's initial loft conversions were in the Adams Morgan neighborhood.  Adams Morgan has several industrial re-use loft developments and the 2300 Block of Champlain Street has a concentration of loft developments.

Logan Circle is also home to several of the most widely coveted loft developments in the District.  Some of the Districts original automobile showrooms have been

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.

Upstart DC-based developers CAS Riegler have made a mixed-use bet on the former Lionel Train store located 1324 14th Street.  A ground floor restaurant and five upscale condos being marketed as Lionel Lofts are currently under construction as chronicled by Preservation Nation.

Lionel Lofts delivery is targeted for the summer of 2012.  Here is a resource to learn more about Lionel Lofts.

In the first half of the 20th century before World War II, Washingtonians ventured over to 14th Street in Logan Circle to purchase an automobile.  The grand condo development buildings that line 14th Street and P Street in Logan formerly housed car dealerships.  

One such building located at 1529 14th Street, was formerly a dealership for the long-defunct Nash Motors brand, and is now home to the Matrix condos.  In the 1950s, Nash Motors merged with Hudson Motors to become American Motor Corporation (AMC).  AMC was led by George Romney, father of current Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.  AMC had success in the market with the Rambler brand and later acquired Kaiser Jeep before selling out to Chrysler in 1987.

The 1400 block of Church Street is located in the thick of DC's famed Auto Row which dominated the storefronts of 14th Street in Logan Circle.  Several of the industrial buildings along Church Street provided ancillary repair services to the blossoming
