Three exciting new restaurants have leased space and will open later this year on the street level of The Colonel, a newly completed apartment community in the rapidly transforming Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC. Shaw resident Josh Phillips will launch his first restaurant venture, Espita Mezcalería, bringing artisanal mezcals and Oaxacan food to Shaw. Co-owners of two of the city’s most wildly popular and acclaimed restaurants, The Red Hen and Boundary Stone, will open a new Roman and Italian-American concept called All Purpose, with The Red Hen chef/co-owner Michael Friedman manning the kitchen. Next door, award-winning pastry chef Tiffany MacIsaac, chef and owner of Buttercream Bakeshop, will open her first storefront shop.
Symbolizing a milestone in the rapid transformation of Washington, DC’s Shaw neighborhood, The Colonel at 1250 9th Street, NW is nearing completion. Oculus Realty has begun leasing 70 new luxury apartments, ranging from studios to a two-level penthouse. This five-floor, 64,500 square foot building at the corner of 9th and N Streets, NW includes 8,500 SF of street-level retail space.
South Cathedral Mansions, a landmark apartment building situated in Woodley Park on prestigious Connecticut Avenue in Washington, DC, has changed hands for only the fourth time since it was designed and developed in 1922 by the iconic team of Harry Wardman and Mihran Mesrobian. Located one block from the Woodley Park/Adams Morgan Metro station and directly across from the National Zoo, the 131-apartment property was acquired by Commonwealth Cooperative, a recently formed group of Washington, DC multifamily industry veterans.
