On July 9, the DC Zoning Commission approved plans submitted by TRS Inc. to build its Planned Unit Development (PUD) at 1227-1231 25th Street NW, the West End site of the Bureau of National Affairs office, which is relocating to Crystal City. TRS is converting the three office buildings now on the lot (which is just above M Street NW along Rock Creek Park) into two connected condominium buildings (1229 and 1231) with four additional stories added on top, with the third building (1227) reserved for offices. The condominium portion will contain up to 295 residential units, including up to 8,000 sf as "affordable" housing. The project is expected to be completed in late 2008.
