A rendering of the planned development.

In June 2020, DC's Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) approved a concept to retrofit a Mount Pleasant laundromat into a residential project. Now, the developer of that project is looking for an extension of that approval. 

Velocity Property Management has plans to restore the laundromat façade at 3215 Mount Pleasant Street NW (map) and add three stories to deliver 15 residential units and 1,420 square feet of ground-floor retail. Two of the units would be inclusionary zoning (IZ). KASA Architecture is the designer.

The reason for the extension appears to be the time it took for DC's Historic Preservation Office (HPO) to prescreen and receive the permit application, a process that appears to have taken 6-7 months. 

An HPO staff report shows that it is recommending that the HPRB approve the extension at its October meeting later this week.
