“R&F Commercial Debt and Equity Secures Acquisition of 430 Keyon Street Washington DC, NW for the conversion of Single-Family Row House to two Condominium Units."
March 2017 – R&F Commercial Debt and Equity LLC (R&F) recently purchased a single-family row house in the Parkview neighborhood of Washington, DC NW which is planned for a condominium conversion to two units.
A solidly residential community, Park View is a quiet corner of the city, one in which the trend toward gentrification has only recently found a foothold. Its one commercial corridor, Georgia Avenue, has found increasing interest and has attracted other goods and services to the area. The revitalization of the corridor began with the E.L. Haynes Public Charter School (3600 Georgia), founded in 2004, and Temperance Hall (3634 Georgia, now the Looking Glass Lounge) in 2006. Since then, a number of new restaurants and taverns have opened and, along with decades old businesses, continue the commercial revitalization of the community.
R&F is currently in the architectural design stage of the project and will quickly turn around to focus on permitting, construction, and sales. This is a joint venture investment opportunity slated to complete spring of 2018.
