From a R2L:Architects press release:
“Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1B approved the recommendation of its Design Review Committee on November 4, 2010 to support the design concept of a proposed new development at 2221 14th Street, NW. The six-story, 30-unit apartment house with ground floor retail and one level underground parking garage will be located on the southeast corner of 14th Street, NW and Florida Avenue, NW. The owner is Douglas Development, and the architect is R2L:Architects, both of the District.
The concept design features a contemporary palette of glass, metal, brick and terra cotta panels. Angular projecting bay windows will provide views from the apartments down both the 14th Street and Florida Avenue corridors. On the ground floor, large glass shop windows could accommodate a café, restaurant or other retail establishment. The project is located within the Greater U Street Historic District, and will seek concept approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board later this month.”
Here’s what the corner looks like now:
