The Fillmore School.
A postponed plan to redevelop Georgetown’s Fillmore School into residences offers a glimpse at what may end up on the boards for the site.
The school, owned by George Washington University, was recently put up for sale with a list price of $14 million. It’s been the subject of many redevelopment rumors over the last five years.
The school at 1801 35th Street NW (map) has a large surface parking lot, the possibilities for which are striking fear in the hearts of residents. The open space — a rarity in Georgetown — is certainly worth a lot of money if a developer can get approved to build on it.
A recent proposal, since withdrawn, gives an idea of what may become of the space. Overmyer Architects submitted the latest proposal to the Old Georgetown Board before withdrawing it.
Overmyer’s proposal would turn the parking lot into 10 new three-story rowhouses, seven of which would front 34th Street with the remainder on 35th Street. The school would be converted into no more than 14 condos, with parking on-site. The project is mostly within the zoning envelope allowed for the site, though the school building itself would need to be rezoned to become residences.
The plan doesn’t name the developer associated with the project.
