A set of commercial buildings on Columbia Road, previously slated for demolition, will retain their facades under an agreement with the ANC and the developer.

ANC 1C and developer Beztak Properties agreed to a memorandum of understanding on Wednesday night that would preserve the facades of 1767-1777 Columbia Road NW (map), where Beztak is planning a large, mixed-use development. In exchange, the ANC promised not to file or support any bids to have the properties historically protected.

Beztak was originally part of the partnership to develop the Adams Morgan Hotel, but later dropped out of that project.

The developer’s local representative, Matt Wexler, said it was the company’s intention to build a by-right project with ground-floor retail and residential units, but would not disclose the project’s planned square footage, number of units or height. The buildings, he said, are zoned with a maximum height of around 65 feet.
