A new 16- to 20-unit mixed-use project bordering Tenleytown and American University Park at 4700 Wisconsin Avenue NW (map) has been proposed with three of the 19 parking spots it requires under zoning.
The building is on the site of Osman and Joe’s Steak ‘n Egg Kitchen, and the developer, Frank Economides, will raze the Steak ‘n Egg building and an adjacent one to move ahead with the project. The developer is working with Richard Foster Architects on the development.
When raze permits for the property were first filed, the thought that Steak ‘n Egg might close set off a neighborhood firestorm. But Steak ‘n Egg is safe, as Washington City Paper has previously reported. Economides told UrbanTurf the popular 24-hour diner will return to the site as one of the new building’s retail tenants.
A rendering of the development.
The new building will give the restaurant a lot more space. The four-story, 50-foot building includes about 4,400 square feet of retail space, half on the ground floor and half in the basement. Economides told UrbanTurf there will be room for a second restaurant tenant and a downstairs tenant, like a yoga or bike studio.
The building’s upper floors will have anywhere from 16-20 units, according to the developer. Economides said they will be rentals, not condos, and will be either all studios or a mix of studios and some one-bedrooms. The building will have a roof deck.
Steak ‘n Egg, a Tenleytown mainstay, may close for a couple of years while the new building is constructed, PoPville has reported.
The developer submitted plans to the Board of Zoning Adjustment to request zoning relief for having fewer than the required number of parking spots.
