The concept for the residential conversion of a prominently sited building in Dupont Circle looks closer to getting approved.
The Historic Preservation Office (HPO) report on the 157-unit apartment conversion pitched for the office building at 1625 Massachusetts Avenue NW (map) recommends the Review Board (HPRB) approve the concept at their meeting later this month.
"HPO recommends that the Board approve the concept as consistent with the purposes of the law, encourage the applicants to further develop the public space plan in coordination with DDOT and HPO, and delegate final approval further review to staff."
The stone exterior and 90-foot volume of the building, owned by National Real Estate Advisors, would not change as the interior is reworked for residential units. Developed in 1972, 1625 Massachusetts Avenue is located at the northeast corner of Massachusetts Avenue and 17th Street NW. The building was renovated and redeveloped for continued office use in 1995. Eric Colbert and Associates is in charge of the design of the conversion.
Here are some other office-to-residential conversions on the boards for DC:
- A 300-Unit Conversion Planned For Two Notable Georgetown Buildings
- Plans Filed For DC's Largest Residential Conversion Along Connecticut Avenue
