Multifamily Adaptive Reuse


Linden Court


Washington, D.C.

Architect/Designer | Square 134 Architects

Builder | Monarch Building & Development Corp.

Developer | Monarch Urban

Photographer | Studio Trejo

Linden Court was originally developed as small, flat-fronted rowhomes, where more than 100 families lived alongside stables and workshops. From the 1960s on, 1313-1323 Linden Court NE was home to City Auto Repair. In 2015, Monarch Urban acquired the property and redeveloped the historic structure into a vibrant mixed-use residential and retail project.

The three-bedroom, three-bath townhomes feature private backyards, garage parking, and sweeping views of Capitol Hill from private roof decks. The development also includes a unique alley retail space with an apartment above it, which is intended to serve as a live/work arrangement for a local artist or retailer.
