Two small-scale projects received early support from the ANC 2F Community Development Committee on Wednesday night.

In the first, property owner Teymour Zabihi intends to turn the existing building and lot at 1738 14th Street NW (map) into a mixed-use development with ground-floor retail and eight studio units upstairs. The project, designed by Alexandria-based Architects Group Practice Ltd., will include retail space stretching the length of the lot between 14th Street and the alley behind it, while the residential upper-floor units will look down on an interior courtyard. Zabihi will seek zoning relief for a rear setback in order to build the interior courtyard space.

The ANC committee preliminarily voiced support for the concept.

In the second project, the Shipman House at 1310 Q Street NW (map) would get a four-unit addition. The house currently has a basement unit, meaning the total project would comprise six units.

The house currently has an extensive garden, but when built it was not planned as an end-unit property. One side is windowless. Trout Design has come up with several potential designs, ranging from modern to more historical. The latest design, which the ANC supported, has a curved corner turret-like design that mirrors those of its neighbor and many old end-unit Victorian houses. The committee recommended supporting the plan, which will go before the Historic Preservation Review Board later this month.
