The second phase of a two building apartment project that has been in the works for years in Southwest DC may be one step closer to reality.
DC's Historic Preservation Office (HPO) staff is recommending that the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) find the concept for a new 187-unit apartment building at 300 K Street SW compatible with the landmarked apartment buildings near the address designed by architect I.M. Pei.
The proposed building, from the Bernstein Companies and designed by Maurice Walters Architects, is the second part of a two-building project -- a 187-unit apartment development at 301 M Street SW delivered a couple years ago.
"The concept design has been designed to complement but not overtly reference the Pei towers and completes the implementation of the approved concept of a unified and concentrated Southwest town center," the HPO staff wrote about the new building. "Like the Pei buildings, the new building has been designed in the round, with equal design emphasis on all sides."
The development will go before the HPRB in a few weeks. For a look at the other developments on the boards in Southwest DC, click here.
