Le Parc

Cleveland Park
Washington, DC

Located along the busy Wisconsin Avenue corridor, and just a block away from the National Cathedral, the existing historic house on this lot had become isolated and lost its relationship to the Cleveland Park Historic District.  The multifamily underlying zoning allowed for much higher density and height. After studying the property a solution was proposed by our firm to rotate and relocate the historic house on the same lot.  This allowed the house to regain its relationship to the other historic buildings on Macomb street, while allowing for a new development parcel that could continue the street wall along Wisconsin.  The new apartment building utilized the full density of the site – essentially borrowing the air rights of the house – to create eight residential apartments.  It was a creative solution to add density to a desirable location where only a single family house had existed.

The project required several entitlements including Historic Preservation Review Board approval and Board of Zoning Adjustment approvals.
