Adams Morgan Alley Garage to be Converted into Office Space
Rendering of the converted garage
Adams Morgan-based creative agency Maga Design recently shared its plans to convert an alleyway garage into the expanding firm’s permanent office space.
Current state of the garage
The garage in the rear of 2312 18th Street NW (map) was originally constructed in 1906 for luxury car parking; it has since undergone an addition in 1910 and later was used as an art restoration shop and storage. CoLuca purchased the garage last year.

CORE architecture + design has furnished plans that would preserve the building facade and retain the existing window and entrance openings while replacing panes and doors. Because the roof is not structurally sound, it will be replaced with a roof similar in shape and appearance, but with skylights; a portion of the roof will also be carved out to create a terrace with a glass guardrail.

As the site’s MU-5-A zoning has an allowable height of 20 feet, Maga will seek zoning relief in order to add an 8 foot-tall story to the top of the structure. The proposal will require approval from both the Historic Preservation Review Board and the Board of Zoning Adjustment; in the meantime, the team is aiming to present the plans to ANC 1C in April or May. The new office space could be complete as early as 2018.
