Check out the Blagden Alley and Naylor Court Blog's report, with pictures, of the ongoing renovations at 1216 and 1218 9th Street by Douglas Development. It is very exciting to know that these notable properties across from the convention center will be restored to their former glory. I found this CoStar listing marketing these properties for office/retail lease. For further information, contact Norman Jemal at Douglas Development Corporation ((202) 638-6300).
The 1200 block of 9th Street has seen quite a bit of change and investment in the past two years. Among other improvements to the block include the gorgeous building renovations by Bell Architects and Wag Time and the openings of Old City Green, D'Vine Bakery and Cafe, and Old Dominion Brewhouse. Hopefully the momentum will continue and the few remaining un-transformed properties will experience a renaissance also.
