31 Unit Art Deco Building Coming to 21st & Benning

S2 Development is building an art deco(-ish) styled residential building at 21st and Benning Road NE. 633 21st Street NE is expected to have 31 units and is planned to deliver by late next year. Construction appears eminent. 

The site is currently in the process of being cleared to prepare for the construction. Million Man Tires was the previous occupant of this site --then addressed as 2101 Benning Rd NE-- and they appear to have moved to 3401 Benning Rd NE.

The project (unsure if there is a clever name awaiting) is currently planned as for sale condominiums. It would be 5 stories tall on the Benning Road side, although it is unclear to me if the developers won a variance to include a significantly set back penthouse level. The 31 total units would range from 0BR efficiencies to 2 BRs. The rendering reminds me a little bit of the Majestic in Mount Pleasant or Highland Park in Columbia Heights. I will update this story as the building progresses.
