Latest rendering of The Irwin
UrbanTurf has been following the design twists and turns of The Irwin, a six-story, 53-unit apartment building planned for the vacant lot at 1328 14th Street NW (map), south of Rhode Island Avenue. Architecture firm Torti Gallas has been revising project plans over the past several months in response to feedback from ANC 2F.
Original rendering for The Irwin
Originally the project was going to have a modern, glass-heavy facade with jutting bays, which the ANC development committee felt didn’t fit in with the rest of the buildings on the street. A second design revision incorporated a more traditional skin of red brick masonry while keeping the entry canopy and rooftop towers.
Last night, the firm presented a third design option for the building at the monthly ANC meeting, which will have The Irwin sit flush against neighboring buildings with a yellow brick facade. The entry canopy and rooftop terrace from the original design were maintained. UrbanTurf was unable to attend the meeting, so if anyone knows how the latest design was received, let us know in the comments section.
Second design revision of The Irwin
At an August ANC meeting, Sarah Alexander of Torti Gallas said that the apartments would be mainly studios and one-bedrooms, ranging in size from 500 to 600 square feet, and the project would have a large internal courtyard, a common roof terrace, a fitness center, bicycle storage and parking for about a quarter of the units. There would also be 4,100 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.
The Irwin will join a slew of other residential projects planned for the 14th Street Corridor.
