A rendering of the proposed project.
A large new residential building is on the boards for 16th Street across from Meridian Hill Park.
The Meridian International Center is seeking to redevelop a portion of its property that’s currently used as a parking lot, UrbanTurf has learned. The nonprofit is hoping to construct a 140-unit residential project on the site, which would also include about 90 parking spaces for residents.
The property, at approximately 2350 16th Street NW (map), overlooks Meridian Hill Park and isn’t far from the intersection of 16th Street and U Street NW. The project would require the go-ahead from the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) because other buildings on the center’s grounds are historically protected. Streetscape Partners and Westbrook Partners are the developers on the project; Shalom Baranes Associates is the architect.
In addition to residences, the building would include meeting space for the nonprofit, according to ANC 1C, which will take a first look at the project at a planning committee meeting on February 18. The project is scheduled to go before the HPRB in March.
UrbanTurf will continue to monitor the project and provide updates to our readership.
