Eastbanc is still looking for the go-ahead to begin constructing Georgetown Hillside, a 70,000 square foot, 27-unit building at 3607 M Street NW (map). Designs for the project, which would replace an Exxon Mobil gas station on the site, have been rejected twice by the Old Georgetown Board, one of several entities which must approve it before it can proceed. On its website, Eastbanc says it originally hoped to begin construction on the building by Fall 2013. The project will go before the Old Georgetown Board again on May 1.

On a brighter note for Eastbanc, 1055 High, a seven-unit luxury project at 1055 Wisconsin Avenue NW (map) should deliver by late 2014. The condos abut the canal, and residents get access to a luxury pool, fitness center, parking and more. The 3,300 to 4,300 square feet units are priced from $3 to $5 million, and sales began in January.

A plan to redevelop Georgetown's West Heating Plant into 80 condos from architect Richard Levy, The Georgetown Co., and The Four Seasons is still under review by the various groups that govern redevelopment in Georgetown. Last time we heard from this project, the Old Georgetown Board was interested in the presented design but wanted more information on whether the building needed to be torn down or could be preserved. The plan the group first floated would involve tearing down 70 percent of the existing building.

3000 M Street NW

SB-Urban, a developer focused on building micro-units in DC, hopes to develop the Latham Hotel into 150 micro apartments with retail space, but no parking. The Georgetown ANC was not excited about the lack of parking, and is asking the developer to reconsider, according to the Georgetown Current. Commissioners also expressed concern at the proposed design for the building at 3000 M Street NW (map), which they suggest was too modern for the red-brick character along M Street. SB-Urban has had success garnering approval for a similar project in Dupont Circle.

Residential developers are interested in developing a church building, apartment complex and vacant land parcel at 2709-2713 N Street NW (map). The Alexander Memorial Baptist Church was put up for sale for $7.5 million on Sept. 10, 2013, and de-listed in early January, but UrbanTurf has learned that developers will soon submit several design concepts to the community.
