Brookland Controversy; Petworth Deal; Curbed Is Hiring

All the latest neighborhood and real estate news from Curbed DC...

BROOKLAND–The somewhat controversial project at 901 Monroe St. went to a vote at the neighborhood civic association meeting and 52 people voted to in support of the project compared to 49 against. The rendering above gives an idea of what this mixed-used space will look like (but will probably change some).

—We took a look inside two new restaurants designed by the same architecture firm this week. One is the latest Founding Farmers outpost in Potomac and the other is the speakeasy-style William Jeffreys Tavern on Columbia Pike.

PETWORTH—This week's Under 300k Club is a Petworth find that has five bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It needs a little work, but looks like a good deal on our end.

GEORGETOWN—Julia Child spent a few years living on the appropriately-named Olive Street and we have a short history of the yellow house she and Paul made their own while in DC.

CURBED DC—We're looking for a part-time, freelance writer to join the ranks of the real estate obsessed. If you or someone you know are interested, click here for details.

DISTRICT—Our weekly round up of market stats shows that DC has the second highest mortgage downpayments in the country and, in a separate report, pending sales for the month of November showed a healthy amount of activity for this time of year.
