Thanks to a couple of readers for sending. From DC Takoma Theatre Proposal:
Adaptive Reuse Proposal
Takoma Theatre Apartments is a proposed adaptive reuse project that seeks to creatively convert the historic Takoma Theatre into a mixed-use building with apartment units and ground-level flex space. Working with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties, this adaptive reuse proposal will retain the exterior of the historic structure and its vestibule and lobby configuration. In an attempt to retain the building’s historic association as a theatre, the exterior redesign will retain the scale and rhythm of openings and incorporate compatible material. Additionally, theatre signage and marquee will be retained and incorporated into the new design. This proposed new use as an apartment building with flex space will complement the current residential neighborhood and enhance the vitality of the community. In an effort to bring life back to this historic landmark and enhance to the vitality of the community, this project capitalizes on the historic building’s notable design, prominent location, and original mixed-use program.
