If you’re not a Housing Complex reader, you may have missed the news that the empty lot at 1427-1429 Rhode Island Ave. NW is going to remain empty for the foreseeable future.
This is the only empty lot on this block of Rhode Island Ave., and one of the few remaining empty lots in Logan Circle.
Jim Abdo, developer behind the project, had planned a 70-unit apartment building, which had been approved by ANC 2F before I joined the commission in September 2011.
Abdo and his attorney declined to give Housing Complex reporter Lydia DePillis, or ANC 2F, a reason for the decision not to proceed on the project at this time, nor has an adjusted timeline been disclosed.
