In 2019, after nearly 80 years in business, Hall Brothers funeral home closed its doors in LeDroit Park and the owner sold the building. Two years later, new plans are on the boards.
A developer has filed plans with DC's Historic Preservation Office (HPO) to turn the former funeral home at 621 Florida Avenue NW (map) into a three-story, 7-unit residential development. The BeStudio-designed project has an interesting mix of units. Each residential level will consist of a four-bedroom apartment and a one-bedroom apartment, according to the floorplans.
At its height from 1950 to 1980, the Hall Brother funeral home was performing up to 140 funerals a year, according to a 2019 article in The Washington Post. That number had dropped to four funerals a year by 2018.
