A previous rendering of Meridian Hill Baptist Church
The Historic Preservation Review Board unanimously approved a project to turn a historic church into 70 condominiums on Thursday after years of back-and-forth between the agency and two different developers.
The addition to the site, originally pursued by Bozzuto and now by Valor Development, will extend the side and rear of the church and include the demolition of the rear of the church. The building addition will rise eight stories.
The church at 3146 16th Street NW (map) will have no parking. The Bozzuto concept proposed fewer condos — about 55 — and 30 parking spots. UrbanTurf previously reported that Valor hopes to enter into an agreement with DC USA to lease or buy spaces at its parking lot about two blocks away.
The applicant said on Thursday that the HPRB approval was one of the last it needed before construction begins on the project. The church building has been vacant since it suffered fire damage in 2008.
