Close Out Sale at the Lacey Modern Condos
I just love the contrast between the old-school, decidedly not modern Florida Avenue Grill and the clean, modern lines of the Lacy condos by Division 1 Architects. There are few units left in the 26-unit concrete, steel and glass complex, which is named after Lacy C. Wilson Sr. and Lacy C. Wilson Jr., the long-time proprietors of the restaurant next door. Located at the corner of 11th Street and Florida Avenue, the Lacey won an Award of Excellence at the 2010 AIA Northern Virginia Design Awards. Good food and good design. What could be better?
