A rendering of 2213 14th Street NW from 14th and W Street
In October, Ellisdale and the Eisen Group presented concept plans for four stories and a penthouse to be constructed atop a three-story building at 2213 14th Street NW (map), delivering a 40-50 unit residential development to the 14th Street Corridor.
After revising plans in response to the Historic Preservation Review Board’s request that the height be reduced where the building meets two- and three-story historic row-buildings and that the design be refined as far as materials, colors, entryways, base and balconies, the Historic Preservation Office (HPO) is recommending that the board approve the new concept at its meeting this month.
With the recommendation for approval come a few design notes. HPO would prefer that the balconies be reduced or removed to emphasize the center projection of the building, which should also be altered to remove the vertical dent that bisects the projection. The office also wants to see windows added to the sides of the bays.
As currently designed and as noted by HPO’s report, the portion of the property that abuts the shorter buildings has been reduced by two stories, making the building read as two rather than one mass. The building’s facade has also been further modernized.
The project is on the board’s docket for this Thursday.
