New Logan Circle mixed-use building concept and massing passes community meeting

A formal motion of support for the concept and massing of a new mixed-use building on 11th and M Street passed unanimously last night at the Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2F meeting in the Washington Plaza Hotel. Community Three Development LLC is one step closer to realizing a final design plan for the 78,000-square-foot building that will take up the current property located at 1011 – 1015 M Street and 1201 – 1207 11th Street NW.

"Overall we’ve had a great response in the community," says architect Sarah Alexander of Torti Gallas and Partners. "We were inspired by some of the great traditional buildings in D.C."

The massing of the building will appear to be two distinct buildings that wrap around the 11 M Cleaners building at 1131 11th St NW. The new 87-unit residential building will have 3,000 square feet of retail space in the ground level and 22 parking spaces, according to plans submitted to Commissioner Walter Cain and ANC 2F.

The first building will be nine stories on M Street of yellow brick and the secondary one will be a red-brick six-story building on 11th Street. There will be one level of underground parking as well as a 15-foot rear-yard on the eastern edge of the property.

Groundbreaking is still months away as the final plans still have to pass the ANC and the Historical Preservation Review Board before permits can be granted.

Logan Circle is home to a rush of new boutique and upscale real estate developments, like the Church Street loft condos that start at over $500,000 for a one-bedroom and the upcoming District apartments at 14th and S Street going for $439,000 and up.
