819 D Street NE
Plans are in the works to convert a Capitol Hill church into a 26-unit residential project.
UrbanTurf has learned that a developer would like to turn the Way of the Cross Church of Christ at 819 D Street NE into a residential project. Plans are in the very early stages, and the project would need to go before the Board of Zoning and Adjustment to receive a variance for that number of units, a source familiar with the deal told UrbanTurf.
Project architect Bonstra|Haresign told UrbanTurf that it will hold off on comment until it works through the design and “achieves some milestones with HPO and BZA.”
The church would be just the latest religious institution in the city to go residential. Last May, we reported that the owner of 1538 New Jersey Avenue NW would turn the church building at the address into a 7-unit apartment project. Also, the owners of Meridian Hill Baptist Church in Mount Pleasant are turning the site into a 70-unit condo building, consisting largely of one-bedrooms.
The church project is not the only conversion on this block of D Street NE. The Edmonds School, a former schoolhouse at 901 D Street NE, is in the final stages of being turned into a 30-unit condo/townhouse development.
