What's Hot: The 4 Projects in the Works (Or on Hold) Near DC's Starburst Intersection | This Week's Find: Fit For Art in the Palisades
A Slew of Art Components Added to Martha's Table Redevelopment
Madison Investments and architect Perkins Eastman have a slightly different look and a more fleshed-out plan for the arts component for the redevelopment of former Martha's Table headquarters on 14th Street NW (map). As planned, the existing buildings on the block would be either razed or incorporated into a seven-story mixed-use project with a penthouse that will deliver 241 residences above 39,382 square feet of commercial space.
The design has been reconsidered somewhat, with portions of the upper floors pulled back and sections of the building articulated differently in order to reduce how much of the structure is within the "45-degree plane", one of the areas of zoning relief being requested.
The development team has also detailed the arts-related component of the project, which is a nod to the ARTS-3 zoning of the site. The following is proposed:
- 4,000 square feet dedicated to arts and entertainment, including a space above the historic garage building at 2114-2116 14th Street. The latter space will be used for a sculpture garden and other arts exhibits.
- The potential to lease ground-floor space along the western alley storefronts to arts or creative tenants.
- Use of visual art screens in the lobbies along 14th Street. Part of the residential lobby could be open to an adjacent retail space so the public can also view the art.
- An exploration of art installations in public space around the site.
- Installation of a mural on the west-facing alley wall.
The BZA will resume considering the development on April 11th. Additional new renderings are below.
