I'll take both & as much of both as possible. Density and ground-level interaction is fairly identical between the Catalysts & Lidos of the world. Some can cater to the high-end (Lido) some can cater to the medium end (Catelyst). 30 years from now, these buildings will transition: some will maintain value, others decline and filter down to be more affordable units relative to future development. Whatever design allows them to be built in more areas, more quickly - assuming the pedestrian-orientation and vibrancy-inducing densities are achieved.
A residential and retail development proposed for Capitol Hill late last year now has a name: Catalyst. Developed by Centron Group, the six-storey project at 2100 14th Street NW would succeed the Parkview Auto Repair shop and its perimeter parking lot with 75 apartments and over 5,000 square feet of main floor retail space.
