Own Fourteenth Street

Home to one of the hardest hit corridors during the 1968 Washington, DC riots, this neighborhood has come full circle with the infusion of some of the city’s most coveted new residential, commercial, and cultural uses. Lumen is the embodiment of that change – the brilliant beacon to the 14th Street Corridor’s unparalleled redevelopment.

Historic Preservation

 

Working closely with the District of Columbia Historic Preservation Office and local neighborhood groups, Community Three employed a design strategy for Lumen which reinvigorates a small corner site previously home to a derelict fortified commercial structure. The composite design, compliments the new surrounding architectural fabric with a blend of orderly tectonic components and illuminating floor-to-ceiling modern forms.


Design

Eighteen elegantly appointed residences comprise this boutique property, with instant access to one Washington's most vibrant entertainment and commercial hubs. The top floor hosts a one-of-a-kind penthouse, offering direct elevator access and sweeping southern views of the city skyline. All while the ground floor commercial uses are restored at the property with renewed vigor, adding excitement to the street level and a completion to the restoration of this high-profile intersection.
