Details and Renderings of the Four Proposals for 8th and O Street

  • Jul 1st 2014

by Lark Turner

On Monday night, four shortlisted development teams selected by the Deputy Mayor’s Office for Planning and Economic Development hosted a community forum where each presented the finer points of their proposal for a District-owned vacant lot at 1336 8th Street NW (map) near the Convention Center in Shaw. Next, the District will decide between the plans after taking into account community input, as well as which team can build the best development the fastest. The city will likely select a developer by September.

Here’s a rundown of each:

  • Number of Units: 85 condos
  • Retail: 4,000 square feet of retail
  • Project from A&R Development: Rhode Island Row
  • Architect: BKV Group
  • Other key points: Developers say a community room would serve as an “urban front porch” for the neighborhood.

Four Points LLC and the Warrenton Group

  • Number of Units: 172 units
  • Retail: 11,400 square feet of ground-floor retail
  • Project from the Warrenton Group: The Avenue in Petworth
  • Project from Four Points: 7th Flats
  • Architect: Esocoff & Associates
  • Other key points: This much larger plan is based on the development of an adjacent parcel at 810 O Street NW (map) that the Warrenton Group is contracted to purchase, and is notably the only one that would likely end up with rentals; the plan would also include a community center.
