A developer’s plan to turn a 2.13-acre site in Capitol Hill into 41 townhomes and 40 condos is moving forward at the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) this month. Insight Property Group provided UrbanTurf with renderings on the portion of the project requiring BZA approval.

Insight and Federal Capital Partners are working with Maurice Walters Architects, SK&I Architects and Quinn Evans Architects on the design for the former schoolhouse site at 13th and D Streets SE (map).

The project shows Insight’s attempt to blend in with its surroundings rather than design something bold — which is not too surprising given that the entire project will conform to the low density required by the R-4 district and is already drawing sharp comments from density-wary neighbors. As reported earlier this week, the two oldest buildings on site will be turned into 40 condos, and nine rowhouses will be built on one part of the site by right. The remaining 32 rowhouses will require a go-ahead from the BZA.

Here’s a look at the renderings for those rowhouses:
