Washington, DC

Back in the middle of Sept. a reader asked about this building and while a permit suggested it was being built to support a restaurant a commenter told us:

“The previously abandoned building is being completely renovated and expanded with the intention of attracting a new restaurant tenant. The design, by Bonstra Haresign Architects, received ANC support and HPO approval for the renovated facade, which will retain the minimal historically significant details that remained (existing cornice and existing openings on the right side) while creating a new double height opening with street-level bay on the left side, which had been significantly altered from it’s original form at some point in the past. The resultant design is intended to be sensitive to the historic context through the thoughtful insertion of contemporary interventions within the facade. The renovated space will feature two levels of seating, a semi-private dining area at the upper street face, and outdoor terrace off the second floor.”

At the time we didn’t see a rendering but recently one has been added to the sign:
