On Thursday, the Historic Preservation Review Board approved Douglas Development’s concept for an office and retail development along 9th Street NW.

The project, which we reported on in March, is an expansion of three rowhouses from 1216 9th Street NW to 1228 9th Street NW. There will be an entrance on 9th Street and a restaurant facing into Blagden Alley. The architecture firm designing the project is Antunovich Associates out of Chicago.

The adjacent space is going to be turned into a four-story residential project, which UrbanTurf covered recently.

In other news from the hearing, a three-story residential building with a commercial ground floor will be going up at 1620 7th Street NW. The HPRB approved the concept for the project, which will be new construction.

    This is great. DC needs more projects like this, instead of all the cookie cutter apartment/condo blocks going up around town.
