The Selldorf Architects designed 14th Street Corridor, Whitman-Walker’s Liz, has been featured in a recent article published by the Washington Business Journal. The new, mixed-use development reconfigures the original Whitman-Walker Health building and Belmont Garage within a new structure that will have residential, commercial, retail and community spaces.

The 7-story building features terra cotta window surrounds manufactured by Boston Valley Terra Cotta in a colorful rainbow of hues. The bright, multi-colored effect used on the 14th Street Corridor has been achieved with the wide variety of surface treatments offered by the ceramic glazing process.
