Only three blocks away from the NoMA Metro station stands a historic warehouse that has been vacant since 2010, but soon it will be home to a new, bustling residential community. A developer hopes to build 100 one- and two-bedroom apartments as well as 60 underground parking spaces at 57 N Street NW. The site has been home to a coal yard with stables, known as Chapman Stables, as well as a historic warehouse, called the Brass Knob Back Doors warehouse, that once served as an antique- and salvaged-home goods store. The plan is to build a one-floor addition to the two-story warehouse. Behind the warehouse, the developer hopes to build a five-story addition on an empty lot. The developer will present the proposal for the development to the Historic Preservation Review Board on May 28.
