"Dear Preserving DC Stables Blogger: We just returned from a lovely 9 day stay in the Blagden Court area. It was great to see firsthand the stables, alleys, preservation efforts, etc. We stayed at the four story apartment building, 1305 10th St NW. Do you have any info on the building? We were curious...was this built after the stable period was at its height? Is it a 1920s structure? What a wonderful neighborhood you have. It is certainly worth preserving. It was very meaningful for us to read the many posts, and view the excellent images, on your blog prior to our visit. Sincerely, Kevin Minneapolis, MN"
The Atlantic apartment building at 1305 10th Street NW was constructed on March 15th 1911- permit number 3991. The architect was A.H. Beers who was well known in Washington and prolific, with 609 permits and 2,433 buildings between 1899 and 1912. Seventy-eight buildings were apartment buildings. The Atlantic (120 feet by 49 feet and 4 stories high) was one of his last buildings, erected at a cost of $35,000 and designed for 24 families of the working and middle class.
