The existing Domino’s at 3255 Prospect Street NW
A proposed development not far from the bustling Georgetown intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and M Streets NW is going to be a bit smaller than originally planned.
Morrison Architects recently filed revised plans with the Old Georgetown Board (OGB) and Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) to replace the Georgetown Dominos and surface parking lot at 3255-3259 Prospect Street NW (map) with a residential building.
The most striking feature of the new application is not the exterior facade of the planned building, which the ANC 2E disapproved of and which has been somewhat simplified, but that rather than the 26 originally planned apartments, there will now be a grand total of seven.
A drawing of the revised building
As planned, the new four-level walk-up building would have one or two units per floor, ranging from between 1,696-3,342 square feet in size. Most of the units will have sizable outdoor terraces, including a wrap-around terrace for the largest fourth floor unit. The roof will include a lap pool for residents, and an underground parking level will provide 15 parking spaces. No zoning variances will be required for the project.
However, the resubmitted concept seems to still be drawing the ire of adjacent homeowners, as some have already proffered letters enumerating their opposition to the design’s massing.
The revised development will go before ANC 2E tonight.
