Just south of Stanton Park in Capitol Hill, there are plans to redevelop a property built in 1876 as the home of former U.S. Treasury official Silas C. Clarke into a lobby shop. HillRag.com reports that ANC 6C unanimously supported the Historic Preservation application for MGM Corporation’s project, located at 501 C Street NE.
Originally, the project planned for a rooftop terrace, but this was removed after complaints from neighbors who were concerned about noise pollution. There were also voiced concerns about an elevator tower, but the developer kept these plans because it will be necessary to ensure building compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, according to HillRag.com.
Other alterations to the project include that it will feature an interior elevator and an exterior, glassed-in staircase.
There are no reports yet as to when construction is expected to begin.
