Whats coming at 8th & V Streets

Many thanks to my neighbor Mike who found this link to the new JBG building going up at 8th & V Street behind the 9:30 club. What do you think of the design?

It seems pretty ugly but given that this is a more urban setting than most of DC it might blend in well – certainly more than the Floridian.

JBG is looking to build 3 buildings in this area: on the northwest and southwest sides of 8th & V Streets and then on Florida at W. Only one of the buildings needs to go before the review board as being in the Arts Overlay so who knows what they will be proposing for Florida and W. This structure seems OK but very modern for DC so we’ll see if they approve it.
