The former home to the Department of Homeland Security near Thomas Circle is on its way to being converted into a large residential project.
Lincoln Property has applied for zoning relief in order to convert the 50 year-old office building at 1125 15th Street NW (map) into 264 residential units above 2,618 square feet of retail. Hickok Cole is the architect.
The building was put on the market last year as a conversion opportunity after the Department of Homeland Security vacated the space.
The new development would have below-grade parking and a rooftop pool. The site's D-6 zoning exempts the project from Inclusionary Zoning requirements.
This is the second office building in Thomas Circle that Lincoln Property has pitched for conversion in recent years. Last year, the owner filed to convert the 1980s-era office building at 1313 L Street NW (map) into a 222-unit residential building.
