W Street Project Named "Cedar Hill"

Well, things are finally becoming more official at the corner of W and 13th Streets SE. The developer's sign heralding their long-awaited townhouse and condo development is finally up, and the official name for the project: Cedar Hill.



The development is being built by Comstock Homes in some sort of partnership with Four Points. Four Points is also the development partner for Curtis Companies, who owns a majority of "downtown Anacostia" along MLK Avenue.

The development's name, Cedar Hill, is the name of Frederick Douglass' hilltop estate just one block away at W and 14th. Although it seems a but odd for the name to be the exact same, I don't really foresee any major problems. These townhouses and condos will integrate with the neighborhood rather than being any sort of private enclave, so I can't imagine the name even sticking once all the units are marketed and sold.

Yes friends, brand new townhomes and condos for sale in the $200s. And on the same block as Uniontown and Big Chair Coffee. I don't think these will have much trouble selling.

I just hope they turn out to be grand, solid, quality-looking townhomes. Too often I see same-developer housing looking vastly different depending on the neighborhood.

Please be aesthetically beneficial!

I am so looking forward to this project. I've been waiting over a year for this one. I hope that Anacostia River Realty can have a role in marketing & selling this development!

Hey Darrin,

My wife and I have our eye on the towns in this development. If you're involved in any way, we'd like to work with you if we can.

Wondering how the new neighbors will impact parking: if there will be off-street parking will be an added amenity; if the present parking restrictions in that block of W Street will change?

Ange,

These units have parking in the rear. Also, W Street will be reconfigured as part of the 11th street bridges project. I believe it will become two-way (as will 13th) with regular neighborhood street parking.

I don't see where I would buy the home.

The homes still haven't been built. :( Although I hear a financing deal is in the works...
