Rock Creek plans to lease the property and is looking for the right tenant to occupy the new space. Featuring nearly 10,000 s/f spanning two floors, the property is ideal for either retail or office tenants look- ing for unique loft space in a restored and modernized historic building. Schlager further commented, “In the end, we came up with a design that works equally well for both retailers and office users. The interior of the building plans very efficiently and delivers that rare, but highly desired, marriage where old meets new in an exciting, unexpected way.” Rock Creek is actively work- ing on a number of projects in and around the District, in- cluding ground-up mixed-use developments in the H St.and U St. corridors, as well as re- positioning projects in other prime submarkets including Takoma, Shaw, Old Town, 14th Street, Dupont Circle and Montgomery County. n

Group broke ground on the restoration of the landmarked Codman Carriage House in Dupont Circle. Located at 1415 22nd St., NW, the build- ing sits at a prime connection point between two of DC’s most storied and established neighborhoods - Georgetown and Dupont Circle. Architect Ogden Codman, Jr. originally designed the carriage house for his social- ite cousin, Martha. Martha Codman spent the winters in the District in her nearby mansion. The location of the carriage house near the en- trance to Rock Creek Park proved the perfect location for her stable. Due to the building’s DC landmark status as well as its location next to Rock Creek Park, the proposed plans were reviewed by both the Historic Preservation Review Board and the Commission of Fine Arts. “Our goal with this property is to bring it back to life. After years of neglect, the original grandeur of the architecture was lost,” said Rock Creek principal Gary Schlager , adding that the building is scheduled to de- liver in April 2017. To preserve the property’s intended design, the orig- inal carriage house doors will be replicated, the façade repaired, certain windows will be restored and others replaced in a manner sensi- tive to the property’s historic nature. To create a modern interior, skylights will be integrated into the building on the sec- ond floor, and soaring 10- to 15-foot ceilings will open up the space. Additionally, at the rear of the property there will be a large roof deck, ac- cessed by the second floor. The property’s façade is currently covered by a concrete wall ad- dition that was added in the 1940s, when it became a tire and car shop. To open up the front and expose more natural light, the building will feature a glass NanaWall system stretching through most of the property’s street front. OTJ Architects designed the project. Eichberg Con- struction will serve at the general contractor. “Given the historic nature of the Cod- man Carriage House, we put
