New Condos for U Street Corridor

Bonstra Haresign ARCHITECTS (BHA) is currently spearheading a top-to-bottom renovation of two neighboring, historic U Street area townhomes at 2029-2031 13th Street, NW – across the street from The Ellington’s retail enclave and caddy-corner from the proposed site of JBG’s U Street Hotel. According to Bill Bonstra, founder and managing partner of BHA, despite the prominent location, the project has presented a few unique challenges.

“[It] is a dual 3-unit conversion with rooftop addition to two townhouses. A tough project as it needed historic approval with the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) and any addition to townhouses, in that regard, is frowned upon strongly by the Board,” said Bonstra. “We had to clearly show them the addition was not visible from the street.”

Following completion of interior work, as well as the rear and rooftop additions cleared by the HPRB in 2006, the property’s owner, Negasi Gebreyes, will be marketing the six condos culled from the site for sale. According to Bonstra, work should wrap up “in a few months.”
