Division One Architects is a local DC firm that is leading the modern front in the area. This week I went into the Shaw neighborhood in the city and had the chance to check out The Lacey, their newest project at 11th & Florida Ave, NW, which according to the on site superintendent of Eichberg Construction is about 2 weeks away from completion.
The Lacey rounds at at about 24,000 sq ft total, and includes 26 units, starting in the low $300k's.
Four live/work units are included and can be seen on the front with private entrances for customers or clients. Very smart. The floorplans can be seen in this pdf.
Some photos I took while there:
At the south end of the block Division One also has the W Street Residence which was completed a few years ago:
I had first seen Division One's work in Baltimore, in the Patterson Park area at their Hopkins Row project. They were a very modern, luxury rowhouse concept that I assume was aimed at the doctors and high-income professionals at nearby John's Hopkins, but never sold as well as was hoped, and I think the project was shut down. One still stands at about 80% completion.
