The design for the new residential development planned at the former Capital Pool Checkers Association site in Shaw is coming into focus.
Contract purchaser N2 Invests and architect Inscape Studio are seeking historic concept approval for a proposal to retrofit the two-story building at 9th and S Streets NW (map) into three duplex units. A conceptual design for the new development was filed with DC's Historic Preservation Office (HPO) earlier this week.
Each unit would have patios and private entrances on S Street and open-concept main levels with bay window breakfast nook, full bath, and den. Upstairs, each would have three bedrooms (or two bedrooms and a den) and two bathrooms; the two interior units would also have terrace spaces accessible from the owner's bedroom.
