After getting input from the Old Georgetown Board (OGB) and the local ANC, EastBanc’s submitted yet another iteration of its design for proposed condos on the site of an Exxon Mobil station in Georgetown. The Georgetown Hillside project, which the company is working on in collaboration with Handel Architects, was last seen looking different in scores of options. The developers were offering designs to respond to requests to break up the massing of the proposed long, low building for 3607 M Street NW (map).
In it latest proposal, EastBanc also includes a rendering of what the building will look like to neighbors who live on the hill above the development. This vantage point is crucial, because the height of the buildings and its impact on neighbors’ view is one of the main drivers of opposition to the 27-unit building.
In response to comments on its last round of designs, EastBanc went with one that breaks up the facade more clearly into three separate parts. Then the developer played around with different materials for the facade, including gray stone and metal.
Here are the three options included in the latest submission:
