A preliminary rendering has now been released on what to expect from a four-story mixed-use development planned on H Street NE. The site, 1301 H Street NE, currently houses a vacant church previously known as the St. John's Church of God. The location of this development is fairly competitive as the Atlas Performing Arts Center is within walking distance and over 1,200 residential units are already planned in the area. If approved, the development will house nine condos and 5,600-square-feet of ground-floor retail. The residential units will all feature two bathrooms and will either have three bedrooms or two bedrooms with a den. The commercial area of the building, which is the first floor and cellar, will offer tall ceilings and large glass bay windows. The developer requested a variance for the project to provide only two parking spaces as opposed to the required 14. A source from the developer, S2 Development, told Curbed that the color and finish selection seen in the preliminary rendering may change. There is no word yet on what these new condos from S2 Development will be priced at. This isn't the first that that the developer has redeveloped a more than unusual site for luxury housing. Earlier this year, S2 Development constructed luxury condos on the site of a Columbia Heights funeral home and was even able to revive a fire-ravaged Mt. Vernon Triangle townhome into four stunning condos only a couple years ago.
