Last week, DC's Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) unanimously voted in support of an alternate design concept to retrofit a Mount Pleasant laundromat into a residential project.
As proposed by Velocity Property Management, the concept would restore the laundromat façade at 3215 Mount Pleasant Street NW (map) and add three stories to deliver 15 residential units and 1,420 square feet of ground-floor retail. Two of the units would be inclusionary zoning (IZ). KASA Architecture is the designer.
The new design is in response to comments from boardmembers last month that described the appearance of the fourth story as "massive" in that iteration. The new design also adds windows to the side of the building, adjusts the coping along the façades, and removes the green wall from the street frontage while lowering the green wall on the side of the building by one story.
Additional renderings are below.
