Renovation of 1907 3rd Street

DC developer Neighborhood Development Company bought the vacant apartment building at 1907 3rd Street and is nearly finished renovating it. The building, which sat vacant and blighted for years, was finally auctioned off last summer and is being turned into a 12-unit condo building called Ledroit Place.

The condo building’s open house is this Sunday from 1pm to 5pm.

Here is what the building looked like two weeks ago:

That southern fa├žade is just begging for a mural.

Here is what the building looked like on May 1, 2010:

1907 Third Street NW

Big improvement, right?

This is the first big project to open in the neighborhood since we moved here in May 2009 and we’re glad to see that one of the biggest eye sores is finally returning to productive use.

  2. How much are the condos going for?

  3. Anything is better I suppose….but it would have been nice if they tore it down and started over. It will be good to have more people in the n’hood. I’m still baffled and annoyed by the proposed renovation of that big house at 3rd & U St. on the same block that the community shot down. Ridiculous.

  4. YES to a mural!

    and nice to see the ugly window units gone from the front of the building as well.

  5. Go for a great community mural! Various things are needed to soften the look of the building and its boxiness, which is not in keeping with the varied visual interest of the homes of LeDroit Park.

  6. Regarding DG’s interest in what the LeDroit Place condos are going for:

    I notice that three of the condominium units at LeDroit Place are now listed in MRIS.

    Here is a link to see the current active MRIS listings for the MRIS neighborhood categories of LeDroit Park and Eckington, kindly supplied by Bloomingdale resident and Urban Pace Fine Homes realtor Suzanne Des Marais.

    Here are the list prices for the three units now on the market:

    Unit #201: $285,660
    Unit #202: $349,850
    Unit #204: $275,575
