The Whitman-Walker site at 14th and R Street NW.
The redevelopment of the Whitman-Walker clinic on 14th Street will include 50-100 apartments and could deliver as early as 2019, UrbanTurf has learned.
The rough timeline for the development, a partnership between Whitman-Walker Health and Fivesquares Development, would include the release of concept plans by recently-announced architect Annabelle Selldorf by this summer followed by a period of community engagement and city approvals. Fivesquares principal Andy Altman says that if everything goes according to schedule, they will be looking at a completion date in 2019 or early 2020.
The development will run along 14th Street from R Street to Riggs Street NW and will back up to the alley that bisects those two streets on the eastern edge of the Whitman-Walker Health property line. The 165,000 square-foot project will be one of the few buildings along the 14th Street Corridor to house residences, office space and retail, as well as an area dedicated to community-oriented uses.
“As one of the last remaining blocks on 14th Street this is a rare opportunity to create something extraordinary not only architecturally but as a new piece of city at the heart of the corridor for the community to enjoy,” Altman told UrbanTurf. “The site demanded a great designer and we are thrilled that Selldorf Architects has joined us.”
Fivesquares Development was formed by Andy Altman, Ron Kaplan and Harris Schwalb as a spin-off off from Streetscape Partners to focus on select high quality mixed-use urban and transit-oriented developments Altman is the former planning director for the city under Mayor Anthony A. Williams, and Kaplan was the Chief Investment Officer of Federal Realty and helped shape what is now Bethesda Row. Annabelle Selldorf is a renowned New York-based architect whose projects include the renovation of a former Studebaker Auto Garage into a co-working space in Brooklyn, and a seven-story residential building in Manhattan.
