At Wednesday night’s ANC 2F Community Development Committee meeting, architects from Hickock Cole presented plans for a new 40-unit residential development at the corner of 14th Street and Corcoran Street NW (map), a site currently occupied by a Zipcar parking lot.

The plans call for a six-story building that will include ground-floor retail and 14 underground parking spaces. The design is largely masonry based, though the architect mentioned that the bricks will be darker than the traditional red bricks seen near 14th Street. The brick portion of the facade will be level with their neighbor to the north, the new redevelopment project on the boards for the Central Union Mission. The upper floors will be constructed from a lighter material and set back from the facade.

The committee voted to support the concept and massing of the project in advance of the developer’s upcoming meeting with the Historic Preservation Review Board, but hopes to see more detail at next month’s ANC meeting.

In other news from the meeting, the three-story building that used to house Sam’s Pawnbrokers at 1508 14th Street NW is being fixed up in preparation for future retail tenants. Architect Richard Foster walked the committee through the changes, which right now mainly involve bringing the building up to code and creating a raw, usable space. No word on what kind of retail might be going in the space.
