Two weeks ago, UrbanTurf reported on a proposal to replace a 16th Street church annex with 78 apartments. Now, we are getting the first look at how that infill building may take shape.
New renderings have been submitted for historic preservation conceptual review of The Drake II, the proposed seven-story-plus-penthouse building at 1328 16th Street NW (map). First Baptist Church owns the three-story annex and would partner with Keener-Squire Properties on the development; they previously delivered The Drake's 218 units on an adjacent church-owned site.
Roughly six of the units in the proposed development would be set aside as Inclusionary Zoning, and roughly 11,460 square feet of ground-floor and cellar space would be for church programming. The project would deliver 16 below-grade parking spaces for the church. Eric Colbert and Associates is the architect.
Materials would be a mix of light brick, ashlar stone with limestone (or similar), and aluminum panels. Additional renderings are below.
