26 Units Proposed for the Georgetown Domino’s

A proposed development not far from the bustling Georgetown intersection of Wisconsin and M Streets NW is ruffling feathers in the neighborhood.

The site spanning 3255-3259 Prospect Street NW (map) currently consists of a rowhouse, a Domino’s and a parking lot. A proposal for the space, which was floated before ANC 2E and the Old Georgetown Board (OGB) by Morrison Architects and is backed by The Elliott LLC, includes 26 condominium units. The Georgetown Madelon, the contemporary building directly to the east of the site at 3251 Prospect Street NW, appears to be affiliated with the project. An owner email on documents filed with the OGB directs to “Elliott@GeorgetownMadelon.com.”

A similar design for the site received a recommendation of “no objection” from the Old Georgetown Board in 2007, though the new proposal incorporates a historic townhouse into the design. That previous project did not include the townhouse, which sits to the west of the Domino’s site.

ANC 2E does not support the new development. Several neighbors have written into the OGB to oppose the project’s scale and massing.

“Domino’s is certainly an eyesore,” one wrote. “We would love to see the site redeveloped. … We think it would be best if the developer took note of the Weaver project or the Wormley School, both on Prospect Street.”

Morrison is revising the project and will present plans to the OGB on April 4.

Correction: An earlier version of this post stated that a previous version of the project was not approved. The design concept received a recommendation of “no objection” from the Old Georgetown Board in 2007.
