Residential to Replace Shaw Church

Shaw Development Partners, a joint venture of Four Points and the Warrenton Group, is planning a residential building with ground floor retail for the site of the Scripture Cathedral Church, reports District Source. Pending approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board, the church at 810 O St NW will be torn down for a nine-story, 60-unit building designed by Phil Esocoff of Esocoff & Associates. Meanwhile, Roadside Development and Dantes Partners, the venture behind nearby City Market at O, were selected to develop 70 residential units with ground floor retail at an adjacent parking lot. So, Esocoff is designing to optimize views and avoid forcing residents to stare directly into the wall of the Dantes building. As for the exterior, Esocoff is using his other project, The Whitman, as inspiration. [DistrictSource]
