A three-level, 14-unit residential project is on the boards for a property owned by the United House of Prayer at 926 N Street NW (map), the Convention Center Community Association reported on Monday.

New 14-Unit Residential Project Proposed for Shaw: Figure 2

According to the website, the new project, designed by Susan Reatig, will have 14 residential units (one 3-bedroom, six 2-bedrooms, 5 one-bedrooms and two efficiencies) above two retail spaces, one that measures out at 2,400 square feet and one at 800 square feet. It is unclear how many of the units will be set aside as affordable housing. The project looks to have about seven surface parking spots and the four top-floor units will all have roof decks. Currently, the property near the intersection of Blagden Alley and N Street NW is a warehouse and loading dock.

This project will be discussed at the ANC 2F meeting on Wednesday night.

    Why must every new building be contemporary in style? This block has some great old buildings. How about building a brick building that actually looks like it was built in 1890 for once? Please? Just once do the right thing? Please? Pretty Please?

    I have seen so much development in shaw since I lived there back in 1996...and some Im not so happy about. While S. Reatig has a style...I have yet to catch on. There are some really beautifully designed homes from the turn of the century...so it would be awesome if someone would play off that with amazing brick & stone work. The interiors can still be contemporary & lofty. Look at the Whitman @ 9th & M. Beautiful brick & stonework that will still look incredible in 50 years. Her stuff is bland...very easy to pass by and not notice. Im not into criticizing other architects so I will leave it at that. Its good to see she has work. www.gaineskelly.com

    I am sorry - I am going to have to disagree with the two previous commentators. DC is chock full of stone-work - in fact its nearly impossible to pass HPRB in many parts of the city without creating a near replica of neo-victorian. The city desperately needs new takes, new attempts at something new and fresh. Or else we simply do not grow. Surely, change can be a good thing?

    Please no more Susan Reatig designed buildings in Shaw. I like modern and I love to see different styles of buildings melding together in one neighborhood, but most of her designs are so hideous. The eye sore at 5th and O St is a good example of an absolutely hideous design. Looks like a poorly designed medical office building. Although the renderings of this particular building look fine, I have zero faith that she is not going to mess it up somehow.
