Douglas Development Plans Mixed Use Project For 14th Street: Figure 1
Rendering for 1313-1317 14th Street NW

The architects for a new 14th Street mixed-use project from Douglas Development stopped by the ANC 2F Community Development Meeting on Wednesday night to share design plans for the new development.

Located at 1313-1317 14th Street NW (map), the project would consist of retail on the first floor with offices on the upper levels. Project architect Hickok Cole described how new buildings would be constructed at 1313 14th Street (currently an empty lot operating as a Popeyes drive-thru) and 1315 14th Street, while the building at 1317 14th Street NW would largely be preserved. As for the design, the facade would be modern and window heavy. The Popeyes at the address has plans to move across the street to 1322 14th Street NW.

The architects were meeting with the ANC committee in advance of meetings with the full ANC and the Historic Preservation Review Board in January. The committee voted in approval of the concept and massing for the project.

    Good bye to Popeye's! But the Crew Club survives.

    Leave the Crew Club alone...we still need some sleaze in Logan.

    The tallest of the three buildings (on the right) would be infill in what is now an alley and would block the many side windows of the existing building. Wonder how that discussion will go down…

    That actually isn't an alley. According to zoning maps that's an empty plot of private land that has been functioning as a drive-tru/alley. Shame on the adjacent building for putting that many windows in what should be a parti-wall. Sure will be interesting tho..

    That adjacent building is a battered women's residence. Doubt they'll complain about the windows.

    @Matty The article says Popeyes is moving across the street...
  1. Matty said at 3:48 pm on Friday December 13, 2013:
    @Adam L: Thanks. Yes, I saw that afterwards. You have to figure Popeye's is doing JUST FINE if they are relocating. Truth be told there are almost no cheap/affordable food options on 14th Street. Along with Chipotle, these two chains are about it. And, no, Ted's Bulletin does NOT qualify as cheap/affordable -- as much as I like it.
  1. DC John said at 3:54 pm on Friday December 13, 2013:
    Will the rats move across the street with Popeye's also?

    ANC2F does a terrible job at advertising its agenda items at the sub-committee meetings. These types of projects quietly get slipped into their community development meetings and but are only discussed at a micro level before a vote at the full anc.
  1. Craig said at 5:07 pm on Friday December 13, 2013:
    Amazing the ANC Committee would vote to approve without seeking input from the adjacent building. N Street Village, the building south of the proposed project, for 15 years has included an apartment building for low/moderate income families on the 14th Street side called Eden House. As Matt points out,the Jamal plan would mean the windows of the apartments on the north side of the building would be sealed by the wall of the new building. Not acceptable.

    To "Rats of Logan": if you are concerned about missing an ANC committee or full meeting with an agenda item that concerns you, visit http://anc2f.org/contact/mailinglist and sign-up for our mailing list so we send an agenda out 7 days in advance to the public.
