Another missing middle example is being proposed in Truxton Circle.

Square 134 Architects has applied for historic preservation review of a design concept to convert the houses at 302-304 Florida Avenue NW (map) into a 13-unit residential development. The two-story rowhouses are landmarked Wardman Flats in an MU-4 (mixed-use) zone.

A cellar level and a set-back third level would be added, and a rear addition would bring the property closer in line with the adjacent ANXO Cidery. Most of the walls between the houses would be removed to open the interior and create a central "trellised lightwell".

The project would deliver 11 one-bedrooms and two, two-bedrooms ranging in size from 508 to 895 square feet, and the units on the top floor would have interior skylight hatch access to private roof decks.

Similar subtle density projects have been proposed in recent weeks on Connecticut Avenue and in Park View.
