A corner building whose future was once deemed questionable may get adapted into a new semi-residential development.
Preservation DC is filing a historic preservation review concept application to retrofit the building at 6th and L Streets NW (map) into a larger, 80-unit corporate housing development with ground-floor retail. The furnished units would be available to those in town on business for extended stays. Bonstra|Haresign is the architect for the project.
The new building will be 70 feet tall plus penthouse and will also include a four-story trio of townhouse-style units with bays and ground-floor entry along 6th Street. There will also be an L-shaped glass atrium between the townhouse-style units and the remainder of the building to provide natural light to some interior units.
Amenities will include a cellar-level gym and a communal roof deck above the townhouses. The development will also provide 10 parking spaces.
ANC 6E considered the project on Tuesday evening; the development will also require a map amendment from RA-2 (moderate-density residential) to MU-8 (medium-density mixed-use).
