Light up the night!



A picture on our neighbor DC Jeff’s blog is bound to cause quite a stir. The new building on at 3rd and H has finally gone from being a concrete bunker to a lit-up office tower. I have yet to make up my mind as to how I feel about it or how it fits in to the Mount Vernon Place masterplan. Only time will tell I guess… In the meantime share your thoughts lighting the streetscape!

Special thanks to DC Jeff for the pic!

    Does anyone have any idea what this building is for?? Why does it have no windows on an entire side of it?

    yeah, I’m pretty sure the lack of windows is because they’re eventually going to build residential on that corner.

    I talked with the president of the Sonata condo association briefly tonight. She said that the lack of windows on the one side of the building is indeed because they do still plan to build a residential mirror building to the Sonata on that corner. So the “Mass Ave Gateway” in the Mount Vernon Place masterplan has not been abandoned. However, it may take awhile as the site where the Madrigal Lofts trailer is sitting seems to be slated to be the next the break ground.
