Looks like more residents will be coming to the area around 14th and Spring, plus a convenience store.
You may recall that in March, the C&K Hotel at 14th and Quincy burned. The hotel, made up of a few adjoining rowhouses, was vacant but had housed a transient hotel and had been the site of prostitution and drug use. After it burned, the building was demolished and now Elevation DC reports that the building will have 20 condos, 16 of which will be two bedroom two bath, plus a 7-Eleven will be located on the ground floor.
The developers, Zusin Development and Sivan Properties, just got a permit last week, so this may be a little ways off.
In any case, nice to see some more folks coming to that area, especially replacing a vacant lot that used to house a sketchy business. The 7-Eleven is decent, I guess.
And this is the second residential project in that area, with the other coming to the southeast corner of 14th and Spring, taking over a couple of buildings. That area might gradually start to look like 14th Street a few blocks south.
