The Murillo Malnati Group filed plans to turn the Transcentury Building into a 47-unit residential building on Thursday.
The proposed building at 1724 Kalorama Road NW (map), designed by Bonstra | Haresign Architects, would have 25 studios, 16 one-bedrooms and six two-bedrooms, including a handful of two-story units.

The building requires approval from the Board of Zoning Adjustment because it is being proposed with seven of the 16 required parking spaces. Murillo Malnati say they can’t feasibly add underground parking to the structure, which doesn’t have a basement.
The Transcentury Building was built in 1923, according to the filing, and has about 22,300 square feet. Murillo Malnati wants to add an addition to the building, which would top out at about 50 feet high, but keep the building’s footprint the same size. They propose adding about 12,200 square feet of living space to the existing structure.
UrbanTurf has reached out to the developer and will update this post as we hear more on the project. For more on development in Adams Morgan, check out our roundup.
