Brook Rose Development Purchases in Columbia Heights - Again

The famed Brook Rose Development, owned and operated by - you guessed it - Brook Rose. The companies newest purchase/development is located at 2719 13th St NW in the heart of Columbia Heights and just around the corner from his most recent knock out at 1207 Girard St NW, a two unit building. My expectation is that 13th will have a similar floor plan to Girard with each bi-level unit having three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms with off street parking. Rose's understanding of luxury and ability to produce nothing short of what we call a masterpiece should only be fulfilled again in 13th St. Girard, as far my research shows, sold for a premium at $765,000 and $710,000 per unit and I expect 13th to overshadow those prices by a mile.
