UPDATE of 12/30/2014: The HPRB requested more changes to this building at its meeting on 12/4. The applicant has, accordingly, made several changes to the design including setting the “penthouse” structures away from the south party wall, removing window wells along the corner of 11th & I, and reducing a large bay to multiple bays. The revised 11th Street elevation is below:

UPDATE of 10/29/2014: The HPRB requested several changes to the design of this building at its meeting on 9/18. The changes will now be reviewed by the Board in November. Accordingly, the ANC will also review the changes at its Planning & Zoning Committee meeting on Wed 5 Nov and will vote on the changes at its monthly meeting on Wed 12 Nov (see meeting details on the Events & Meetings page).
Below is the revised front elevation. According to the architect, the changes from earlier versions (see further below) include the base material, a simplified front entrance, and removal of the 11th and I Street separate entrances. All units will now be accessed through the main entrance.
UPDATE of 9/26/2014: Both the ANC and the Historic Preservation Review Board have approved this condo project for 900 11th Street SE. But, at the Board hearing on 9/18, Members asked for several changes in design from what the ANC and others saw on 9/2. Below is a view of the 11th Street side of the building with these changes. They include the elimination of “stoops” for duplexes along 11th and I Streets and a reduction in height of the main entrance feature. Scroll down to compare with previous designs.
ANC6B’s Planning & Zoning Committee–at its 9/2/2014 meeting–recommended that the ANC support the historical preservation application for a new condo building at 900 11th Street SE. The ANC will vote on the application at its monthly meeting on 9/9/2014.
Below are some of the designs (a perspective and north and west elevations) presented to the Committee. ANC6B had reviewed a different design at its Planning & Zoning meeting in July 2014 but final review/vote was delayed until September 2014. These current plans will be considered by the Historic Preservation Review Board during its September meeting.
The developer is Madison Investments and the architect is Jeff Goins of PGN Architects on Capitol Hill. Madison plans to include 49 units in the building; five units along 11th Street and one on I Street will be duplexes with street entrances. There will be parking on site for 30 vehicles (23 spaces underground) and 49 bikes with access to the garage via an existing rear alley. This will result in the closure of 3 existing curb cuts increasing the availability of on street parking spaces. Ten percent of the building’s units will be affordable.
Below for comparison is the July 2014 design for the West Elevation.
