Life is about to get pretty plush at 1841 Columbia Road NW.
The 114-unit, 83-year-old apartment building formerly known as the Alcazar is currently in the process of a $7 million makeover. It’ll soon have a rooftop terrace and a separate green roof. The antiquated heating system will be replaced, and the apartments will have central air conditioning. There’ll be a new apartment doors, new showerheads, new toilets, a new laundry room, a key fob system, and a remodeled lobby.
And one group of tenants isn’t very happy about it.
