Mr. Wash to Become Luxury Building

February 7, 2014

The Logan Circle condo project that will be built on the site of a 13th Street car wash will break ground in June and deliver in late 2015.

As Urban Turf reported in January, the Mr. Wash, the adjacent Jerry Chan’s Carry-Out and a garage at 1309-1313 13th St. NW (map) will make way for the six-story project, developed by The Holladay Corporation.

Representatives from Holladay told a crowded room at the monthly ANC 2F meeting on Wednesday night that the project would break ground in June, and take approximately 15-18 months to complete.

The 67-unit development, designed by Eric Colbert, will consist of studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms. There will be five inclusionary zoning units, as well as 27 parking spaces and 26 bicycle spots.

The project is matter-of-right, so the developers did not need any zoning ordinances or historic approvals. But that doesn’t mean that it’s been totally smooth sailing. A group of neighbors was on hand Wednesday night to voice their frustration and concerns when it came to the views and light that the new building would block, and the possible issues that could arise as a result of the construction.

Among other projects, Holladay Corporation developed The Matrix on 14th Street and the Car Barn on Capitol Hill.
