Notes
Survey number HABS DC-584
Building/structure dates: 1904 initial construction
Significance: 709 D Street was designed by I. Grenueller, architect, in 1903-1904 and built by W-F Basin, contractor. The building's greatest significance lies in the retention of ht originally intended functions of housing over retail, a building type that dominated the downtown area at the turn of the century. original finishes may be extant on the upper floors. The restrained Romanesque and Italianate detailing give its facade a character robust enough to establish the building's individuality in a block k that is dominated by taller corner buildings.
