DCMud broke the news that the YWCA building at the southwest corner of 9th & G St NW will be demolished sometime around June 2012. In its place, a 112,000 square foot LEED-GOLD certified building will be built. It is uncertain how the planned construction will affect the residents of the 50-unit Mather Studios condominium which is adjacent to the future construction site. Also, adjacent to the future construction site is the only alley entrance for most buildings on the same block.
The project will bring an updated design to the corner of 9th & G St NW in the way of a mostly glass facade and 9 foot ceilings for floors 2-7 and 10 foot ceilings for the 2 penthouse levels.
