Welcome to UrbanTurf’s Property Week, a week-long series devoted to some of the most intriguing residential properties in the DC area and beyond. From a train station-turned-brothel-turned home to a clever way of making 140 square feet livable, this week is all about cool residences. Enjoy.


Longtime Georgetown developer Eastbanc will construct eight, large residential units and a restaurant on the site of a gas station at 2715 Pennsylvania Avenue NW (map). Renderings of the planned project were filled with the Zoning Commission late Friday.

The restaurant will be located on the cellar and ground floor of the new development, and there will be four levels of residential units above the eatery. The residences will average approximately 2,000 square feet. The penthouse level will have a gym and a small terrace.

The project is designed by Eduardo Souta de Moura, who won the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2011. At the time the head of the prize’s jury, Peter Palumbo, said de Moura’s buildings “have a unique ability to convey seemingly conflicting characteristics—power and modesty, bravado and subtlety, bold public authority and a sense of intimacy—at the same time.”
