Above is a rendering of a proposed mixed use (housing, office and studio spaces, with an emphasis on arts) development in the 1900 block of Ninth Street. A parking lot currently occupies the lot where the project would be built (and man oh man wouldn't it be great to see that plot of land put to better, more attractive use!). DCMud has the full story.
What do you think about the proposed project? I think all would concede the development would stand out (for better or worse) from the surrounding buildings.
