Cool Moderno Condo Breaks Ground on U Street

Ground has been broken on the Moderno on U St. Like the other buildings developed by Robertson Development and Lakritz Adler, this condo is very stylish and breaks the mold of DC residential development. This is the kind of high-end residential building that DC was lacking for so long.

Flats. Duplexes and Triplexes with very fancy-shmancy finishes.




Presumably there is no extra charge for the purple prose on the Moderna website. Would the following make you feel better about buying here? "The spare sophistication of the modern furniture displayed at MoMa. The newest styles on the runways of Paris and New York. Even the simple clean lines of a wine glass." Not me.

Hum. They can't even provide a in-the-streetscape rendering? I reckon 12th Street doesn't look like that grassy plain they have going there.

Furthermore, what terrible hyperbole.

There is another Robinson development across the street.

But I reckon your reckoning is on the mark...

Heh...if you wander by, its being shoehorned into an old small parking lot, next to an Ethiopian restaurant and a dumpy rowhouse.

Its going to look really stupid in context to the surroundings.
