Evanti Row Planned for 1900 Vermont
I recently learned of a planned development for the corner of Vermont Avenue, T and 10th Streets to be known as Evanti Row. Announced by Macy Development last November and slated for completion in 2008 (although to my knowledge it has yet to break ground, so that timeline is likely off), the project will occupy what is mostly a parking lot feet from the Green Line's U Street metro station. Evanti Row is designed by Zahn Architects and will be comprised of seven new row-houses, each with two luxury condominium units. The project adjoins the Evans-Tibbs House, which was the home of Madame Evanti, the first African-American opera star to garner international acclaim. Most of the multi-level units feature double height living areas and terraces and the corner building’s upper unit boasts a grand master suite in the tower element.
