It has been a while since a new condo development was delivered in Adams Morgan.   Adams Morgan was one of the first NW District neighborhoods to see industrial conversions to residential lofts, but much of this activity has been completed for over a decade.  Also, there are fewer large infill parcels in this neighborhood as the riots following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King did not impact Adams Morgan nearly as much as neighboring communities.
