As the proposed fourth building of The Portals in Southwest DC prepares for Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) review, new renderings offer the public a better sense of what that building may look like.

Republic Properties Corporation is looking to replace the surface parking lot beside the Bureau of Engraving & Printing's coal shaker facility at Maryland Avenue and D Street SW (map) with a 13-story building. The development would deliver 353 residential units and a 2,500 square-foot public rooftop restaurant/bar.

The development would have residential units on both its lower levels, along with 237 parking spaces and a bicycle room. Amenities will include an indoor pool and a residential rooftop terrace. WDG Architecture is the designer.

The CFA will review the development at its meeting later this week. The Board of Zoning Adjustment will also consider the application for the rooftop restaurant in March.
