120 Units Planned for Chapman Stables, Former Home of the Brass Knob
A rendering of the project on N Street.
Developer Four Points is backing a 120-unit project for the Chapman Stables in Truxton Circle.
The project, presented by developer John Sunter before the Hanover Area Civic Association on Wednesday night, requires approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board. It is otherwise being built by-right and won’t require a hearing before the Board of Zoning Adjustment.
Another look at the development’s relationship to the former building.
The Chapman Stables at 57 N Street NW (map) was built in stages between 1906 and 1916 and was used as a coal yard, a stable and a garage. It’s the former home of the Brass Knob warehouse, which vacated the space in 2010, and is a designated historic landmark.

Four Points and Sunter’s plan, designed by Studio 27 Architecture, would add a third floor to the two-story warehouse building and a large five-story addition on the empty lot behind it. Underneath the new building would be a one-story parking garage with 60 spaces.
The units are primarily small studios and one-bedrooms, with two-bedroom units mixed in, the developers said. At this point in the project’s timeline, they are planned as rentals.
The five-story addition.
The development team plans to file with the Historic Preservation Review Board in late April. The project will take 12-15 months to build once excavation starts.
