A large residential development has been pitched to replace an office building on the site adjacent to The British International School of Washington, abutting Dumbarton Oaks Park.

The property owner of the office building at 3300 Whitehaven Street NW (map) has filed a conceptual review application to the Old Georgetown Board (OGB) to replace the building with a five-story residential/educational building. Grosvenor is the developer and Hickok Cole is the architect.

The unit mix will span from studios to three-bedrooms, and the new development will include 5,300 square feet of educational use, including a below-grade auditorium and reconfigured outdoor recreation space.

The building will is meant to read as four structures, and materials will primarily be brick and stone. Because the site was previously included in a planned unit development (PUD), there will likely also be a PUD modification application filed down the line. OGB is scheduled to consider the project next month.

CORRECTION: Language at the beginning of the article has been edited to make clear that the school will remain.
