Between a proposed boutique mixed-use building and this proposed hotel, one Shaw block is seeing a lot of action lately.

Architextual has applied for historic preservation review of a concept to retrofit the building at 1318 9th Street NW (map) to create nine apartments and office space. The building was recently operating as Lift Lounge, an event space for legal cannabis gifting.

The design concept would add two stories and a bay window to the commercial building on the site and the office space would be on the cellar-through-second floors. Each of the units will be one-bedrooms, with the exception of two bi-level two-bedrooms, each with private outdoor space, on the top floors.

The rear of the building would accommodate a ground-floor garage off Naylor Court. Kadida Development Group is the property owner.
