2305 Ontario Rd pre-renovation

Construction is progressing on the conversion of two single-family houses into an eight-unit condominium building at 2305 Ontario Road NW. A building permit was issued in January for the Adams Morgan project. Mike Crisci, owner of 202 Development LLC, expects to begin the framing process for The Harper in two weeks.
“Once the building is framed, we will begin marketing,” he says.
The conversion consists of combining two single-family houses into a single property. The existing back walls will be removed and an expanded back installed, as well as a third story added to the building.
The resulting three-story with cellar building will have two condos on each floor, including the cellar. All the units will be about 1,100 square feet in size and have two bedrooms.
Crisci chose to make all the units two-bedroom because “typically, when I’ve done condo projects that works out best for sales. I could have done 10 units with a few one-bedrooms, but two-bedrooms are more desirable.”
All the units will have Energy Star appliances and home automation systems that allow owners to control features such as lighting with their smartphones. Each of the top two units will have a private roof deck. There will be a common space in the rear of the building, where there will be three parking spots as well.
Crisci says prices are likely to start in the mid-$500,000s. He expects to finish construction in late June or early July.
The building is all residential. “The property was not zoned to allow retail so it wasn’t an option,” he says.
Crisci called the location “ideal.” While the building is technically located in Adams Morgan, “we are midway between Adams Morgan and the U Street Corridor,” he said. “We are within minutes of the shops and restaurants” in both neighborhoods.

This article was updated after publication to add the name of the building, which will be called The Harper.
