3612-3614 Park Place Nearing Completion

3612 3614 Park Place(3612 & 3614 Park Place, NW)

The two former rowhouse shells at 3612 & 3614 Park Place are nearing completion, so much so that Greenline Realty has a Coming Soon page with some interior photos available at http://www.greenlinere.com/theparklincoln. I’m curious what people think about these two structures “reimagined as five visionary units and lofts.”

The developer also appears to have purchased 3610 Park Place, so perhaps well see another three-unit conversion in the future as well.

    Two units to 5 is going to have negative impact on the surrounding neighbors but the structure looks great. Originally they threatened to make it ugly if they didn’t get their variance to make it 6, so I am glad they changed their minds. I do like most of the construction this company does just wish they would do more single or even double conversions.

    Why negative impact?

    • Cliff Says:

      Parking, and mostly the lessons “learned” from the urban renewal programs of the 1960s: Dividing single family homes into multiple units creates slums in 10 – 15 years. Sure, it attracted buyers in the 60’s but they all became flop houses in the late 70’s/80’s.

      • gentrify-u Says:

        duh! They became so because of the riots and the nonsense of all those who ideally will be leaving as the renewal continues. Don’t drive, use a bike

    I live on the block and I think they’ve done a fantastic job. Though I also would have preferred single family homes (mostly to avoid the pop-out in the back), these are really beautiful, especially the way they did the pop up while keeping the same look. If anyone remembers the gorgeous magnolia tree they had to cut down at the very beginning, they used that wood in the construction, a staircase and vanity I believe, which is a very nice detail. The plan for 3610 is for 2 units. I also have to say that they’ve been absolutely fantastic neighbors — with all of the horror stories about developers in dc, I wish all the developers would learn from these guys.

    Although I credit them for not putting in concrete blocks for the retaining wall, the wall doesn’t look like it fits visually. The houses are good; just going by that monstrosity at Warder and Lamont each day is a sobering reminder as to what developers can do if they want to.

    I am actually very impressed on the visual aesthetic.
