1328 14th Street NW
14th Street can add one more development to the ever-growing list of planned residential projects for the avenue.
Last night at the ANC 2F development committee meeting, plans were discussed for a new six-story, 55-unit apartment building south of Rhode Island Avenue called The Irwin (named for property owner Irwin Edlavitch). The project would occupy the vacant lot at 1328 14th Street NW (map), which sits across the street from places like Churchkey and Fathom Creative.
Sarah Alexander of project architect Torti Gallas said that the apartments would be mainly studios and one-bedrooms, ranging in size from 500 to 600 square feet. There would be 11 units on each floor, and the project would have a large internal courtyard, a common roof terrace, a fitness center, bicycle storage and parking for about a quarter of the units. There would also be 4,100 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.

However, the project’s glass design was met with opposition from members of the committee, some of whom felt that it didn’t fit in with the rest of the buildings on the street. The developer and architect are going to make some revisions to the design as well as talk to neighbors about their concerns before coming back in front of the ANC, so there is no clear timeline when this project will get started.
