Last Thursday at the Blagden Alley-Naylor Court Association meeting, representatives from Suzane Reatig’s architecture firm presented a revised design for a new residential project at 926 N Street NW (map), Preserving DC Stables reported over the weekend.
Earlier this month, Reatig’s firm presented initial designs for a three-level, 14-unit residential project to the ANC 2F committee, which were greeted with intense opposition. The design was unpopular, and residents felt offended that the firm hadn’t met with them prior to the meeting to discuss the design. Alley residents were particularly incensed, since the building sits at one of four openings to the historic Blagden Alley.
UrbanTurf will post the latest designs as soon as we get our hands on them, but we hear that residents are pleased that the conversation is now flowing and at least one told us that the new design is much improved on what was initially presented.
UPDATE: While we didn’t receive renderings, Megan Mitchell from Suzane Reitig Architecture gave us a comment.
The exterior of the building will be a contemporary interpretation compatible with the scale and massing of the rest of the street.The meetings with the community so far have been rigorous and we’ve gotten some very good feedback.
