Just around the corner from The Park at LeDroit, plans are in the works for an interesting conversion.
A developer has applied to the Board of Zoning Adjustment to convert one of three residential units at 2021 4th Street NW (map) into a restaurant. The three-story building was constructed at the turn of the 19th century as a single residential unit above a basement and ground-floor commercial space; an addition in 1940 created another residential unit with a private entrance.
If redeveloped as proposed, the ground-floor of the restored building would be a restaurant, while two full-floor three-bedroom units would be on the levels above. The restoration will require extensive interior renovation also, including leveling out the ground floor and replacing joists on the second and third floors.
Because commercial use has been discontinued for at least three years, the developer needs a variance to revert back to its original use. The proposal would also expand the third story, add a storefront projection, remove newer metal coping from the second floor and remove the rear deck.
Nelson Architects is the project designer. A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
