The development team behind the 76-unit development planned at 8th and O Streets NW will present updated plans and renderings to the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) in the coming weeks.

The team, led by Roadside Development along with Dantes Partners and architect Shalom Baranes, will create a nine-story building at 1336 8th Street NW (map) with 76 units and 3,912 square feet of retail on the street level. There will be one level of underground parking.

Six three-level townhomes with private roof terraces will front 8th Street NW. The residences, including a number of affordable units, will be located on the development’s upper floors. There will also be two penthouse apartments and indoor/outdoor amenity space on the 8th floor.

The facade has several setback elements and is broken up into three massing components. The townhouses will be constructed of bronze metal with dark brown textured brick, while the bulk of the condominium building will be a light buff-colored brick with bronze metal accents. Another block between the two sections will be a transitional section with varying shades of brown brick and bone white metal.

The Deputy Mayor’s Office for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) granted development rights to Roadside Development and Dantes Partners for the city-owned lot at 8th and O Street NW in 2014.

    Like it. What a change it'll be.

    Although I am not crazy about the color palette, it's nice to see some variety and depth in the massing. I also appreciate the way in which the architects are responding to the adjacent row houses on 8th Street--the low-rise portion is a nice transition from that scale to the taller scale to the north and west.
