Plans to build condos on the site of a Georgetown gas station are again moving forward, albeit slowly.

Developer EastBanc has long been planning a residential project on the site of the Key Bridge Exxon station at 3607 M Street NW (map). The latest proposal calls for between 26 and 28 units, and the project, called “Georgetown Hillside” in its submission to the Old Georgetown Board, will go before the board and the neighborhood ANC in March.

According to EastBanc’s Matthew Harris, the condos will be reviewed by both those organizations and the U.S. Commission for Fine Arts “before going through the other approvals such as zoning and building permits,” as is typical for projects in the Georgetown historic district. The district is governed by the Old Georgetown Act, which requires builders to go through a complex process to win approval for a design.

In 2011, it was announced that a 35-37 unit, five-story development was in the works for the site adjacent to the stairs that were made famous in the movie The Exorcist. However, the Old Georgetown Board rejected a number of the design proposals for the project, and the new development was also hampered by neighbors above it, who claimed that it would affect their views of the Potomac.
