Five years after a boutique residential development was proposed for a small stretch of retail in Shaw, new plans are in the works.
DKY Property Management is now seeking Historic Preservation concept review to partially demolish and retrofit the commercial properties from 1612-1616 7th Street NW (map) into a three-story building with nine residential units.
The historic façades of the buildings will remain, and with the additional 20 feet of height, there will be retail on the cellar and ground floor levels and residences on the two floors and penthouse above. The unit mix will be four two-bedrooms and a one-bedroom on the second floor, three two-bedrooms on the third floor, and an entrance on the third floor to stairs leading up to the two-bedroom penthouse unit.
Most of the units will have private outdoor space, and the development would also be elevator-accessible and include two rear surface parking spaces. Rich Markus Architects is the new designer.
