New Townhouses Coming to the 1300 Block of 6th Street, NW

Two new townhouses are under construction on the 1300 block of 6th Street, NW, and will replace three now-demolished rowhouses that were located at 1341-45 6th Street, NW.

The two new buildings will be identical three-story structures.  Each will have a one-bedroom apartment on the ground floor and a three-bedroom apartment on the top two floors.  In addition, there will be an outdoor patio and parking for both units in the rear.

The former buildings have been demolished, and construction is expected to be complete at the end of June or early July.  A rendering of the new building is after the jump, along with a photograph of the buildings that are being replaced.

The buildings are owned by the United House of Prayer and were designed by Suzane Reatig Architecture.
