A partnership between Network Realty Partners and Meadow Partners, which co-own 2100 M Street NW (map), has applied for zoning variances and other relief to enable a renovation and expansion of the nine-story office building at the corner of 21st and M Street.
The re-design for the building, constructed in 1969, completely alters the façade, builds to the lot line, and adds three stories and a penthouse. Morris Adjmi is the design architect.
"The project will include a complete redesign and modernization of the building’s façade on all frontages and will extend the building envelope into the northern portion of the lot, which is currently unoccupied, creating a tiered system of terraces giving a new, more artful expression to the building’s street presence," the application states. "Perhaps most importantly, the Project is designed from the ground up, intending to activate and engage the building with the surrounding public space."
A reconfigured ground floor will increase the retail square footage from 11,400 to 19,440. The project would also add 80 bicycle storage spaces and go from 271 to 265 spaces in the below-grade garage. The building will be leased by Avison Young.
CORRECTION: The ownership of the building has been corrected since publication. In addition to the penthouse, the renovation would add three stories rather than two.
