The Edmonds School building, a former schoolhouse at 901 D Street NE (map), will soon be turned into a 30-unit condo/townhouse project, UrbanTurf has learned.
On Tuesday evening, developer CAS Riegler received unanimous support from ANC 6A’s Economic Development Committee for their application to the Historic Preservation Review Board on the project. With partner Ditto Residential, CAS Riegler plans to restore the building and convert it into homes.
The units in the school will range from junior-one bedrooms to 1,700-square foot three-bedroom lofts. The project will also also have three adjacent 3,500-square foot townhouses. Surface parking and outdoor space will be available to residents.
“We are excited,” CAS Riegler’s Adam Stifel told UrbanTurf. “Conversions of historic schoolhouses are few and far between.”
CAS Riegler will present to the full ANC on November 8, and then go on to the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB). The firm, whose past projects include The Flatiron and The Standard Eleven, also has current projects in Shaw and Columbia Heights.
