There are few things more recognizable in the Logan Circle neighborhood than the massive barrel-like entry to the former Barrel House Liquor location on 14th Street NW.
In October, the iconic store moved next door, as the result of rising rents. However, the barrel entry remains at the old retail space and will remain in place when the building is redeveloped.
UrbanTurf has learned that a seven-story residential development is being proposed for 1341 14th Street NW, the previous location for the liquor store. The proposal will be presented to the community later this week.
Building owner Eric Meyers tells UrbanTurf that the new project will consist of retail space with 35-40 residences above. And the barrel entry will remain with the new development.
“The barrel is iconic and the neighborhood would like to see it stay, so it will remain as long as I am involved with the building,” Meyers told UrbanTurf.
The new project, designed by Bonstra|Haresign Architects, will go to the Historic Preservation Review Board after ANC 2F. Plans are to break ground next fall, and until that point, Meyers says that the site will host a series of experiential community and art events, starting with a holiday-themed event in December.
