Housing Development Update: 2910 Georgia Avenue …. and Maybe 2920 Too?

2910 Georgia Avenue

According to information shared at last night’s Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force (GACDTF) meeting, the condo development at 2910 Georgia Avenue may be open by August 2011 and has already sold two of its twenty-two units.

The building was begun in June 2010 by Eric Colbert and Associates. Twenty units in the building are market rate and two will be for lower-income residents. Before the low-income units are offered all twenty market rate units must be sold according to Sylvia Robinson and Darren Jones, co-founders of the GACDTF who toured the building recently.

Additionally, Robinson and Jones learned that two units have already sold in the development. The least expensive flat in the building is listed at $209,900 (Terrace level, 1br) and they top out at $389,900 (4th floor, 2br/2ba). You can few the building’s floor plans along with starting prices for each group on the building’s Website. You can also look at a complete list of current pricing here.

Is 2920 Georgia Avenue also destined for development?

Some interesting scuttlebutt that Robinson and Jones mentioned at the meeting is that they were given the impression during their walk through of 2910 that the developer had also purchased 2920 Georgia Avenue with the intent of developing the property with another condominium project.

More information is needed before we can add 2920 to the list of projects planned for the Avenue, but it is definitely a property to watch and in combination with 2910 would make a dramatic impact on the character of that section of Georgia.

  1. Dave Says:

    Scuttlebutt – The origin of the word “scuttlebutt,” which is nautical parlance for a rumor, comes from a combination of “scuttle” — to make a hole in the ship’s hull and thereby causing her to sink —- and “butt” — a cask or hogshead used in the days of wooden ships to hold drinking water. The cask from which the ship’s crew took their drinking water — like a water fountain — was the “scuttlebutt”. Even in today’s Navy a drinking fountain is referred to as such. But, since the crew used to congregate around the “scuttlebutt”, that is where the rumors about the ship or voyage would begin. Thus, then and now, rumors are talk from the “scuttlebutt” or just “scuttlebutt”. Date of origin, 1805. 🙂
