Rendering of 1700 Columbia Road NW.
The Adams Morgan residential boom continues.
UrbanTurf has received updated information on the redevelopment plans for the project at the former Ontario Theater at 1700 Columbia Road NW. Plans for the site of the theater, which stopped operations a couple decades ago, are for a six-story, 65 to 85-unit mixed-use building on the triangular corner.
Developers will be attending the ANC 1C meeting on Wednesday night to seek the committee’s approval in advance of an application to the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA). The developers will be seeking special exemptions regarding the roof design, parking limits and loading specifications.
As it is planned right now, the building will be mainly comprised of one-bedrooms — including lofts and townhouse-like units — along with a handful of studios and two-bedrooms. Several of the top-floor units will have spiral staircases leading up to a private rooftop terrace area.
There will be retail on the ground level, and one story of underground parking with 25 total spaces. Zoning would require 35 spaces, but the developers are applying for an exemption. The roof will vary in height, a design quirk that will also require a special exception from the BZA.
