Raze permits have been issued and construction will soon begin on the project at 1124 – 1126 Florida Avenue NE, the former site of a car repair shop. The project sought support from the community and revised plans were approved last summer. Links to previous posts are hereherehere, here, and here.

The raze permit was covered by the Washington Business Journal, which noted:

1124, 1126 Florida Ave. NE: Two raze permits were issued for a pair of single-story commercial buildings, which will be demolished to clear the way for a 52-unit condominium building coming to the Trinidad community. Pierce Investments LLC, the developer, earned the backing for its project from the Board of Zoning Adjustment in July. To pick up community support, Pierce reduced the height of the building by 3 feet, 6 inches, among other minor changes.
