Plans have been filed with DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) for a new 30-unit apartment building along H Street NE. 

About 18 months ago, Christopher Martin, the owner of 1371 and 1375 H Street NE, presented preliminary plans to the public for a 50-unit residential project at 1365-1375 H Street NE (map). Due to the complicated nature of incorporating the landmarked building at 1365 H Street  into the new development, the scope of the project, designed by John Linam Jr., was slimmed down earlier this year.

Now, plans call for a four-story, 30-unit development, consisting primarily of junior one-bedroom and one-bedroom apartments. Fans of the Atlas Doghouse, which is located in the retail portion of the building, will be happy to learn that the business is not going anywhere.

"Atlas Doghouse has been seen as a neighborhood amenity, both for providing dog care and employment opportunities, and the Project has been specifically designed to allow Atlas to remain at the Property," the BZA application stated. 

Development along the H Street Corridor is picking up after a bit of a hiatus. WestMill Capital Partners has plans in the works for a roughly 200-unit apartment project with retail at the AutoZone site at 1207 H Street NE. And an 80-unit development has been proposed for 1000-1016 H Street NE.
