Three months ago, DC's Historic Preservation Review Board sent the development team for the planned residential development behind the Scottish Rite "not quite" back to the drawing board. Now, the 125-150-unit project along 16th Street is returning with an amended design.
The residential development, a partnership between Perseus TDC and the Scottish Rite, would sit on the Masonic Temple-owned lot at 1733 16th Street NW (map) and would also incorporate the carriage house on the site. The project would include two "English basement" levels with below-grade units and 110 underground parking spaces.
In light of the Board's and Historic Preservation Office's staff recommendations that the building needed a different glass-to-brick ratio and improved architectural relationship with other rowhouses along the street, designer Hickok Cole has uploaded new renderings to the project's website.
The building also appears to have been pushed back from the alley to improve circulation through the site, another point noted by Boardmembers and staff. A new HPRB hearing has not yet been scheduled. Additional renderings and perspectives are below.
