The development team behind the largest residential conversion in DC has filed plans for the development with the city.
Post Brothers has plans in the works to convert the Universal buildings at 1825-1875 Connecticut Avenue NW (map) into The Geneva, a sprawling residential development with upwards of 600 apartments. The development team submitted plans for the project to the DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) in December and will go before the BZA in mid-March.
Post Brothers acquired the two buildings, which sit across from the Washington Hilton, from JBG SMITH earlier this year.
The conversion, designed by Handel Architects, would result in a 120-foot tall project with a new facade. The development will include inclusionary zoning units, according to the development team, and will likely include family-sized residences. The two-story theatre building along Florida Avenue will be removed to make room for a redesigned entrance for the new development.
Construction could start in spring 2024, depending on how long the entitlement process lasts.
