UrbanTurf has received the first design image for the redevelopment of the Whitman-Walker Health site on 14th Street between R and Riggs Street NW (map).

The plans for the redevelopment of the clinic, a partnership between Whitman-Walker Health and Fivesquares Development, will include four floors of 80-90 apartments above office and retail space. Whitman-Walker will continue to operate several services, taking up the entire second floor and also will have space on the first floor of the new development. The development will run along 14th Street from R Street to Riggs Street NW and will back up to the alley that bisects those two streets on the eastern edge of the Whitman-Walker Health property line.

The project architect is Annabelle Selldorf, a renowned New York-based architect whose projects include the renovation of a former Studebaker Auto Garage into a co-working space in Brooklyn, and 10 Bond, a seven-story residential building in Manhattan.

“We are thrilled with Annabelle’s first design in DC,” Fivesquares managing principal Andy Altman told UrbanTurf. “It is as beautiful and timeless as other notable buildings of hers, such as 10 Bond Street in New York City.”

The development will go before the ANC 2F Community Development Committee on Wednesday night before plans are filed with the Historic Preservation Office later this week. As UrbanTurf reported in January, the rough timeline for completion of the development remains early 2020.

Fivesquares Development was formed by Andy Altman, Ron Kaplan and Harris Schwalb as a spin-off off from Streetscape Partners to focus on select high quality mixed-use urban and transit-oriented developments.
