New Designs Proposed For Georgetown's Exxon Condos

  • April 28th 2014

The developer of a Georgetown condo project at the site of the Key Bridge Exxon has released new plans after their latest proposal was rejected by the Old Georgetown Board (OGB) in early March.

EastBanc and Handel Architects have come up with six different designs to present to the OGB in early May in hopes of getting its 27-unit Georgetown Hillside condo project on its way to final approval. Commissioner Tom Birch told UrbanTurf Eastbanc’s that the previous design was “kind of somber” and didn’t fit in with the types of materials used throughout M Street. The site at 3607 M Street NW (map) is adjacent to the famed Exorcist stairs.

Here’s a look at the previous design:

EastBanc seems to have taken the ANC and OGB’s advice seriously in its latest take on the condos. They appear designed to blend in more with the hillside and with an adjacent historic building. Here are a few more of the proposed ideas for the building’s facade:

ANC 2E will be reviewing the latest designs at their monthly meeting Monday night. We will have more details on the new designs on Tuesday.
