A rendering of the proposed redevelopment at 1800 Columbia Road NW
There are new details and images for the proposed redevelopment of the SunTrust plaza at 18th Street and Columbia Road NW (map).
PN Hoffman currently plans to construct a six-story condominium building with a penthouse level and two or more ground-floor retail tenants. There will be approximately 58 residential units, 11 of which will be duplexes. One level of underground parking with 32 spaces will be accessible from the adjacent alley on Columbia Road, where the loading dock and trash room will also be located.
As seen in the above rendering, the bulk of the building will be a blend of yellow, grey and tan brick atop a dark granite stone base. There will be modern filigree elements as well, with the metalwork surrounding a second floor terrace overlooking the plaza and surrounding the spire on the roof. The “Adams Morgan” sign on the facade will also be cut out of a modern filigree and mounted 16 inches from the masonry.

The proposed building’s massing will reference the curvature of other buildings within the nearby historic districts. There will be a roof deck on the fifth floor, as well as a green roof atop the penthouse level. The paved plaza will have outdoor cafe seating, a Knickerbocker historical plaque and an additional historical feature or focal point, as well as some landscaping and benches.
The development team, comprised of PN Hoffman, Potomac Investment Properties and architect Eric Colbert and Associates, will go before the ANC 1C Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee on April 20th to share the plans, which have recently faced neighborhood and ANC opposition.
