The 275 Units (Possibly) On the Boards For Georgetown

by Nena Perry-Brown

Georgetown's infrastructural rehauls (and the expected return of the Glover Park Whole Foods) have been the big news in the neighborhood lately. There has also been increased attention given to transit accessibility, between the streetcar extension getting cancelled earlier this year, WMATA floating the idea of a Georgetown Metrorail stop, and the concept for a gondola to Rosslyn fading into the background.

With delivery of the 226-unit Glover House late last year, more than half the units in the Georgetown/Glover Park pipeline are completed. However, there is still a good deal of new construction in the pipeline in the neighborhood. UrbanTurf catches up on the status of these projects below.

In case you missed them, here are the other neighborhoods we have compiled development updates for so far this year:

2715 Pennsylvania Avenue

Developers EastBanc and Willco plan to file for new building permits for a residential project at the former site of a Valero gas station at 2715 Pennsylvania Avenue NW (map). The approved five-story building will have a ground-floor restaurant with outdoor seating beneath seven residential units, each of which will average 2,000 square feet. Shinberg/Levinas Architectural Design is the architect of record and Souto Moura Arquitectos designed the building.

Georgetown West Heating Plant

Last fall, the Zoning Commission approved mixed-use zoning for the site of the historic Georgetown West Heating Plant at 1051-1055 29th Street NW (map). The Georgetown Companies and the Levy Group are leading a development that would partially raze and retrofit the structure into 60 Four Seasons-branded luxury condos. The units would overlook a one-acre, elevated public park designed by Laurie Olin; Sir David Adjaye is the building designer.

1234 Wisconsin Avenue

EastBanc has applied to construct an addition to 1234-1242 Wisconsin Avenue NW (map), delivering an additional 15,000 square feet of office space and five residential units above the existing retail. McInturff Architects is the design architect.

2208 Wisconsin Avenue

As of a year ago, Coba Properties was planning a development with up to 40 residential units above retail at 2208 Wisconsin Avenue NW (map).

Latham Hotel Redevelopment

Construction has stalled at the site of the old Latham Hotel at 3000 M Street NW (map) as the development team tries to reformat in light of difficulty finding retail tenants. Rather than a 10-story, 88-room hotel above three stories of retail, Thor Equities is seeking Historic Preservation approval for an 8-story, 256-room hotel above a single story of retail. Shalom Baranes is the architect.

2900 M Street NW

An Old Georgetown Board application was filed in October to renovate the existing buildings at 2900-2924 M Street NW (map) and infill a new 4-5 story building behind it, delivering roughly 38 residential units on the upper floors. The M Street frontage will retain retail and services on the ground floor, and office space on the second floor and two cellar levels.

The building would also have garage parking accessible by car elevator, accommodating 32 vehicles by stacking three in most of the spaces. Hickok Cole Architects is the designer.

3401 Water Street

A zoning hearing is scheduled in June for the condo project proposed at 3401 Water Street NW (map). IDI Group is proposing to retrofit the two-story building that hosts the Berliner Beer Hall and add five stories to deliver 54 condos above the beer hall and other retail and restaurants. Between two garages, the project will also provide 52 parking spaces and 18 long-term bicycle spaces. BBGM Architects is the designer.

Weaver's Row

Longtime Georgetown institution W. T. Weaver and Sons, along with developer McCaffery Interests, has proposed a five-story mixed-use project at 3220 Prospect Street NW (map). The development would deliver 45 one to two bedroom rental units above 4,500 square feet of commercial space. Apartment amenities will include a lounge, gym and roof deck and lounge with bar and grill, and the project will also have 32 vehicular and 18 bicycle spaces below-grade. Hickok Cole Architects is the designer.

The Elliott

As of January, the development team planning to replace the former Domino's site at 3255-3259 Prospect Street NW (map) filed for Historic Preservation of the latest plans. A proposed four-story building would be appended to a two-story office building on the site, delivering four condos above retail. The project will also include 10 below-grade parking spaces and storage. Robert Elliott is the developer; Noritake Associates is the design architect, and Emotive Architecture is the architect of record.

Hillside Residences

It has been another year without news for the approved 21-unit residential building at 3601 M Street NW (map), a site that was also floated to house a station for the proposed gondola to Rosslyn. Altus Realty Partners is the developer and Handel Architects is the designer.
