8th & H Street
This new retail building at a major commercial intersection in Washington, DC combines traditional detailing with a modern design. The building’s upscale appearance is enhanced through the use of corbelled brickwork, custom window frames and a cast stone cornice. The two-story facade allows for a future expansion on the second floor. The vandalism resistant design and national retailer tenants are helping the H Street Community Development Corporation’s goal of revitalizing the neighborhood. The post modern style choice of the building’s architecture was carefully considered to match the exterior neighboring community.
