The remarkably rapid transformation of Washington, DC’s Logan Circle neighborhood continues with the opening of HOLM, a 38-unit luxury apartment building at 1550 11th Street, NW. CAS Riegler completed construction of this modern, four-story structure on one of the area’s last developable land parcels, formerly used by Diamond Cab. HOLM includes approximately 3,000 square feet (SF) of street-level retail space that will soon be home to a highly anticipated restaurant.
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.
