Six years ago, Keener-Squire Properties delivered The Drake, a 218-unit apartment building on the First Baptist Church's property in the 1600 block of O Street NW. Now, the church is looking to add another site and more units to their partnership.
An application for historic preservation conceptual review has been filed with DC to replace the three-story annex building at 1328 16th Street NW (map) with a 78-unit apartment building.
Roughly six of the units in the proposed Drake-II development would be affordable per Inclusionary Zoning requirements. The church would also use roughly 11,460 square feet of space on the ground floor and a below-grade floor for programming. The project would deliver 16 below-grade parking spaces for the church. Eric Colbert and Associates designed the building.
As part of the application, the development team would also renovate the O Street façade of the first Drake apartment building, where stonework was designed to match the soon-to-be-demolished annex.
