A large residential conversion is on the boards for a pair of older but notable buildings on the southern edge of Georgetown, UrbanTurf has learned.
An affiliate of Potomac Investment Trust has plans in the works to convert a portion of the buildings at 1000 and 1050 Thomas Jefferson Street NW (map) for residential use. The buildings are located between the Georgetown waterfront and the C&O canal.
The conversion of 1000 Thomas Jefferson Street would consist of the addition of two levels plus a penthouse, with residential units on the upper floors and commercial uses continuing on the lower levels. The conversion would add approximately 95-115 residential units, and the existing 140 parking spaces and loading areas in the building will remain.
1050 Thomas Jefferson Street will be converted to a primarily residential building with the addition of three levels and a penthouse. The preliminary unit count for this building is approximately 170-220 units. The existing 230 below grade parking spaces will remain. Shalom Baranes Associates is in charge of the design for the conversion of both buildings.
"For both sites, portions of the existing buildings will be demolished to reduce the overall floor plate sizes to allow viable residential floor plates with appropriate plan depths," documents filed with DC's Historic Preservation Office stated. "Existing facades will be removed in their entirety and 2-3 new floors will be added vertically. Ground level areas are being designed to permit retail and some commercial uses."
UrbanTurf will continue to monitor the progress of this project as it moves forward. For a rundown of the large development projects on the boards in Georgetown, click here.
