300 8th Street NE
A new four-story, 42-unit condo development is in the early planning stages for the 300 block of 8th Street NE on Capitol Hill.
On Wednesday evening, Community Three Development’s Grant Epstein shared plans with the ANC 6C Planning, Zoning and Economic Development Committee to demolish the one-story building at 300 8th Street NE (map) and replace it with the matter-of-right four-story development.
The project would include 42 condominium units; approximately one-third would be one-bedrooms and the remainder would be two-bedrooms. An underground garage, accessible via an alley, will contain 21 parking spaces. The dialysis company currently occupying the building will move out next spring.
The Torti Gallas-designed building would be painted brick and the massing staggered to suggest the appearance of multiple buildings rather than one. The main entrance would be on 8th Street, with the lobby opening onto a ground-floor fenced courtyard behind the building. A twelve-foot penthouse, alongside a green roof, will contain two units with Capitol views. The building will be stepped down to three stories on C Street, with a roof terrace amenity atop this portion.
Early rendering for 300 8th Street NE
Community Three presented the plans to the community on Tuesday evening, and several neighboring residents expressed concern that the building’s aesthetic was uncharacteristically industrial for that section of the neighborhood. Others raised concerns about the loss of light and privacy and would like more time to confer with the development team in hopes of a compromise.
The ANC committee voiced concerns with the architectural style of the development and the need for additional renderings from various elevations and depictions of materials. As such, the committee voted unanimously to recommend that the full ANC not support the new development in its current iteration.
