The Atlantic Plumbing Project is not the only new neighbor that the 9:30 Club will have by 2015. Two new residential/retail buildings called The Shay are on their way to the corner of 8th and Florida Avenue NW. If The Shay's Facebook page makes anything clear above others it's that the design of the 245 unit building will be very much influenced by the fashion world. Quotes from Gianni Versace and iconic photos of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis pepper their timeline as frequently as clips from design blogs and news items about the surrounding neighborhood. The style that they're going for is decidedly industrial with exposed concrete and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. That's not to say that everything will be rough and rugged as the amenity package also includes a swimming pool, two landscape roof decks and a dog washing station.
