I briefly mentioned the coming renovations for 2914 Sherman Avenue last week when posting the highlights from the January ANC 1A meeting. I thought it would be good to provide more information on this project since it will have a huge impact on the 2900 block of Sherman Avenue.

The building is located just north of the PEPCO substation on the corner of Harvard and Sherman and has been vacant for several years. In a fashion similar to the building’s twin just up the block, a third story will be added to the building facilitating the conversion of this former 18-unit apartment building into a 20-unit market rate building.

The project proposes to convert these into a mix of one- and two-bedroom units with five units on each floor. As each of these units will be somewhat larger than the original one-bedroom apartments, the addition of the third level will only increase the number of living units by two. Below is the proposed first floor plan providing an idea of what the living spaces will be like.
