Look Inside: These $3 Million Capitol Hill Rowhouses Are Designed to Be Residences or Offices
Some Capitol Hill residents have fought against lobbying firms and other businesses that seek to turn Capitol Hill rowhouses into commercial space. But Petra Development president Rashid Salem says that wasn’t an issue with the five 19th century houses he’s renovating into buildings that can be used as single-family homes, offices, or a combination of both. The historic rowhouses, which sit along the C Street, NE border of Stanton Park, were already zoned for both commercial and residential use when he bought them, and had been used as offices for decades. “Harry Reid’s call center was run out of our carriage house,” says Salem.
