Truxton Circle development sites (as seen from a 1510 North Capitol Street NW condo deck)

Some pics taken from an upper-floor condo deck at the new construction 1510 North Capitol Street NW Five Points condominium building.

This is 1532 North Capitol Street NW, location of the former Eastern Carryout, which suffered a fire back in 2016.  The building was razed. I have not heard of the plans to reconstruct the building, etc. etc. 

This is 1522 North Capitol Street NW, owned & managed by the DC Department of Planning and Economic Development (DMPED).  Here is info on this slow-moving project from the website:

1520 North Capitol Street, Washington, DC

Retail · Restaurant · MULTIFAMILY

Flywheel Development and Urban Green were selected as the winning response under a solicitation issued by DC's Deputy Mayor's Office for Planning and Economic Development. Cycle House will be the first mixed-use net zero energy building in DC. The project takes its name from the building’s bicycle amenities, which are designed to maximize the ease of cycling for building residents, as the site cannot easily accommodate automobile parking. The building includes a bike elevator accessible from the rear lobby which will allow residents to “bike” seamlessly from their front door to the street level. 
The building program includes 15 units of affordable rental units above a restaurant from Brookland-based restaurateur Jaime Vargas. 

This site has been used by North Capitol Main Street for its Art All Night event. The silent disco has been at this site.  So it will need to find a new home once construction begins.

This is 1509-1519 North Capitol Street NE.  These five rowhouses will be razed and property owner So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E.) will erect a new construction building 14-story all affordable residential building. 

This is 1 Florida Avenue NE.  The site was purchased last year by Aria Development Group, which has indicated that it would be a "prominent" building.  

Aria Development’s Joshua Benaim has indicated “the company is looking for a site in the area that could accommodate a distinctive multifamily apartment project.”

No concrete plans have been discussed.
