A pair of buildings on King Street, in the heart of Old Town, could be demolished and transformed into a new mixed-use development.

Owner Silverman Group filed an application to the city to redevelop 615 and 621 King Street as a single mixed-use building, the Washington Business Journal first reported.

The applicant is requesting a concept review and a permit to demolish. The new four-story building will include 26 multifamily units and ground-floor retail.

The building at 615 King Street was most recently a Walgreens and a pilates studio. The current building was constructed in 1929, which underwent several alterations over the years including a redesign in 2006.

The building at 621 King Street is currently a Burke & Herbert Bank. This building was constructed in 1906, and much of the facade remains the same.

“As part of the redevelopment, the Applicant proposes to retain, renovate and integrate the existing two structures into a combined mix-use building,” the application said. “The proposed building proposes to be set back the new upper floor addition and retain the massing and proportions of the existing facades along King Street.”

The project is scheduled to go to the Board of Architectural Review on Wednesday, March 16.
