The project planned for the corner of 13th and U streets NW recently underwent some changes, due to community feedback.
The planned 134-unit space, which was once thought to be a hotel, was originally rejected by residents who attended a design committee meeting this summer. AlthoughÂ the committee in advance of an Historic Preservation Review Board hearing approved the plans, some residentsÂ were concerned with the height and scale of the development.
Urban Turf reports that in response, theÂ architect David M. Schwartz brought the height down to 86 feet and set back the seventh and eighth floors. The firm also eliminated plans for a rooftop pool.
At the November 19 meeting, the committee voted to support the project. In December, JBGÂ will go before the fullÂ ANC and will plan on submitting theirÂ PUDÂ before the end of the year.
