The Lincoln-Westmoreland is a 108-unit, ten-story apartment building at 1730 7th Street, NW, near the corner of R Street. The owner of the building plans to use a parcel of land to the south of the existing building — currently a single-story concrete parking shelter — to construct a new, 8-story apartment building with 56 residential units. The building will have 3,100 square feet of ground-floor retail and approximately 35 underground parking spots.

The start of construction is targeted for the third quarter of 2013, according to the owner's representative. Construction of the new building is expected to take 14-16 months.
Before construction can begin, the developer must resolve an issue with WMATA (which owns property adjacent to the site), and the developer continues to work on securing financing for the project. It bears noting that these issues been unresolved for at a year or more, so there may be reason to be skeptical of the developer's current target for the start of construction.
