Condos Proposed for 12th and G Streets, SE – New Development in Capitol Hill Historic District
by Larry Janezich
District Design, a local architectural firm representing developer Steve Snyder, submitted a proposed concept design to ANC6B for up to 27 condos at 1211 G Street, SE. The site, adjacent to Potomac Gardens, is currently an abandoned parking lot and an existing brick structure that was constructed for the Salvation Army in 1941. The proposal anticipates the renovation, restoration, and addition to the existing building, as well as construction of a new building on what is now the parking lot. The timeline for the project is uncertain and contingent on meeting Historic Preservation Office criteria.
On Tuesday night ANC6B Planning and Zoning Committee reiterated its previous support for the project after District Design unveiled additional design modifications made at the request of the Historic Preservation Office and the Capitol Hill Restoration Society. The proposal is likely to go before HPRB later this month.
