After adding a baker’s dozen of apartments around the block, Daniil Kleyman is filling out another corner in Church Hill North with an infill development that’s set to add 16 more homes.
The prolific developer has teamed up with area builder Bryan Traylor on a project at the corner of 29th and R streets that’s replacing a former medical office building with eight for-sale townhomes and four duplexes containing eight rental units.
Traylor’s Unlimited Renovations is handling construction, and Kleyman said Traylor is a partner with him on the for-sale homes, which they’re developing under a separate LLC and plan to price in the mid-$400,000s. The rental units, developed under Kleyman’s Evolve Hld LLC, are pre-leased with rents at or near $1,900 a month.
Construction got underway earlier this year on the project’s first phase, consisting of the duplexes and four of the townhomes. The other four townhomes will make up a second phase that’s set to break ground this fall.
The roughly half-acre site is on the opposite side of the block from an earlier Kleyman project: a mixed-use development at 30th and Q streets that includes 13 apartments and a commercial space that’s home to restaurant Soul N’ Vinegar.
Kleyman said it was during that project that he saw that the single-story office building at 1127 N. 29th St. was for sale.
