Last week, the development team behind the proposed multi-family project at the Meridian International Center submitted a new design to ANC 1C in advance of a meeting with the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB).

Located at 2300 16th Street NW (map), the project was supposed to be reviewed by HPRB last spring but neighborhood and ANC 1C opposition likely led the team to make changes to the design before moving forward.

In the new iteration, the number of residential units in the development, from the team of Streetscape Partners and Westbrook Partners in partnership with the Meridian International Center, has dropped from 140 to 110. There will also be two below-grade levels of parking.

Rather than being located on the corner of 16th Street and Belmont Street, the residential entrance is now directly across from Meridian Hill Park’s Joan of Arc statue. A semi-circular set of stairs lead up to the entrance; an additional vehicular and accessible entrance is sited on Belmont.

Perkins Eastman is the architect for the redevelopment, which will also house office space for the nonprofit. The new design for the project will likely go before ANC 1C in October.

    Excellent. Finally something that looks like it belongs in the neighborhood and DC. It will stand the test of time and not look outdated in 10-20 years.
