One more hop-back is on the boards for DC.
This week, the ANC 2F Community Development Committee will consider the concept and design for a development that will combine the pair of conjoined office/retail buildings at 1714 and 1716 14th Street NW (map) into a single project called a hop-back, a style that is becoming more prevalent in DC.
1714-1716 14th Street NW DC
Earlier this year, Eric Hirshfield and Arcadia Design teamed up on a similar “hop-back” development in Petworth, where a rear structure is connected to the street-facing property to create a single building, adding density to a site without using a traditional rear addition.
The bones of the existing three-story buildings — located between Flowers on 14th and Peregrine Coffee — and the two-story carriage houses in the rear will be restored and combined into one development with two ground-floor retail spaces, office space on the second floor and mezzanine, and 6 loft residences with roof decks on the third floor and mezzanine above.
Rendering of the proposed development
Because the mezzanines will be created with partially-open ceilings atop the second and third floors, the new building will have a height of 51 feet to the top of the uppermost mezzanine, with an additional seven feet for the stairwell enclosure to the shared roof deck. The project will also have a common courtyard atop the third floor and garage spaces in the rear on the street level.

The development, also designed by Arcadia Design, will also require approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board.
