There have been any number of recent residential conversions in the DC region, but the area has yet to see a bowling alley conversion. Until now.
UIP recently filed plans with DC's Historic Preservation Office for a 321-unit development at the site of the former Brookland bowling alley in DC's Brookland neighborhood. Brookland Lanes will be constructed around the historic building at 3726 10th Street NE (map).
"Brookland Lanes’ big idea is to accentuate the existing historic building by designing a handsome yet understated new building around it," the plans stated. "The proposed new building’s architectural language is defined by a contemporary interpretation of Art Deco design principles in reference to the existing building."
The new development, designed by ktgy, will have a pool and an outdoor amenity space on the roof of the existing historical building. UIP is also proposing a new public retail plaza at the corner of 10th Street NE and Michigan Avenue NE.
The duckpin bowling alley at 3726 10th Street NE was in operation from 1939 to about 1950 when a fire severely damaged the building. The property was most recently occupied by the Atlantic Electric Supply Co.
