Suzane Reatig’s controversial new condo building at 926 N Street NW (map) received concept approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board late last week, reported DCmud this morning. The building will consist of 14 residential units and ground floor retail. Some units will have private outdoor space.

The building, which is connected to the Blagden Alley-Naylor Court Historic District, was the subject of a heated debate at several recent ANC 2F meetings. The design has been adapting to comments from the community throughout the last few months, but Reatig’s firm did not get ANC approval before their meeting with the HPRB. According to DCmud, Reatig will continue to revise the design and will produce more detailed renderings soon. They hope to break ground within the year.

    Does this sound like an approval? Think not..... http://lgbt.dc.gov/DC/Planning/Historic+Preservation/About+HPO+&+HPRB/Who+We+Are/Historic+Preservation+Review+Board/Agendas+and+Reports/HPRB,+March+22,+2012/Blagden+Alley+Naylor+Court+HD+-+926+N+Street+NW+-+HPA+12-160 They should stop tricking people into believing they have "official" approval to insert their "designs" in that neighborhood.

    I have never seen a Reatig building that I have liked. They look cheap an unimaginative. There is a collective groan in Shaw whenever a new one is announced. Even when it replaces an empty lot or a dilapidated building, it is a net loss for the neighborhood. At least those properties had potential to become something nice.

    Are they knocking down buildings? Given the 40% price hike on the Naylor court stables, these will be in high demand
