DC Mud reported yesterday that construction is finally beginning (this morning) on the Hurt Home and that the building is going to be redubbed “the Montrose”.
DC Mud wrote that there were no details on the layout or pricing of the 15 units, but that construction is planned to be complete by the end of 2013.
GM did actually get his hands on some unit plans that were shown to the Old Georgetown Board last year. Perhaps they weren’t the final final plans but they probably give a sense for what they will look like.
Those plans called for a mix of one and two-story apartments. The two-story apartments will be either on the ground and first floor or the second and the third floor. GM’s not sure which apartments would be the best. The ones on the first floor with the gigantic windows looking out on the park would be awfully nice, but they won’t have a patio. The lower units on the side will have patios, but won’t have the great views. The top floor duplexes will have the best views, but no outdoor space. But they all will be great apartments either way.
GM doesn’t have anything to add on the pricing of the units, but he does remember from early meetings on the project that the $800k range was tossed around.
By the way, the Montrose is obviously named after Montrose Park, but what is Montrose Park named after? GM’s searched the Post archives and can find no answer, even in the articles announcing the park’s opening in 1911.
