The residential conversion at a former bowling alley in DC is moving forward, and new renderings provide a good sense of what the development will look like. 

In mid-2022, UIP filed plans with DC's Historic Preservation Office for Brookland Lanes, a large residential development constructed around the site of a former bowling alley at 3726 10th Street NE (map) in DC's Brookland neighborhood. The development team will go before the city's Historic Preservation Review Board later this month to hopefully receive approval for the redevelopment.

The project, designed by ktgy, will have 337 apartments, as well as a pool and an outdoor amenity space on the roof of the existing historical building. UIP is also proposing a new public retail plaza at the corner of 10th Street NE and Michigan Avenue NE. 

"Brookland Lanes’ big idea is to accentuate the existing historic building by designing a handsome yet understated new building around it," the plans stated. "The new building components step down and back from the historical building to emphasize it as a centerpiece, which serves as the main project entry and amenity experience."

The duckpin bowling alley at 3726 10th Street NE was in operation from 1939 to about 1950 when a fire severely damaged the building. The property was most recently occupied by the Atlantic Electric Supply Co.
