Tenleytown's Dancing Crab Site Tapped For 41-Unit Project With Rooftop Bar

The site of Tenleytown's former Dancing Crab restaurant could soon become a seven-story apartment building. 

The restaurant's owners filed a planned-unit development application Monday with the Zoning Commission to build 41 residential units on the site, UrbanTurf reports

The project, at 4615 Wisconsin Ave. NW, would also include 5K SF of retail, including a rooftop bar and restaurant. Most of the apartment units would be studios or one-bedrooms, but it would have two two-bedroom units and a one-bedroom unit set aside as affordable. 

Bonstra | Haresign Architects designed the project, and the owners are also working with Holland & Knight, Bradley Site Design, CAS Engineering and other consultants. 

The project sits across the street from the Frequency Apartments, a 100-unit project converted from the former WAMU headquarters that Urban Investment Partners delivered this month. It also sits across from Tenley View, the 60-unit, mixed-use project Douglas Development built in 2014.
