2526 I STREET NW
The south side of the 2500 block of I Street features nine row houses built in 1911 (2512-2528 I Street). Even though these houses have more land than others in the neighborhood, they were built as low-cost housing for working people. The largest group of houses have set backs from the street that allow for a variety of terraced landscaping.
Nos. 2520-2528 were designed by Washington architect N.R. Grimm and built by Charles W. King, Jr. These houses are slightly wider and have slightly more ornate brickwork than Nos. 2512-2518. No. 2526 has a wood portico that extends the length of the unit and is supported by wood/brick posts. (This is likely an addition). There is a transom over the front door. It shares a dentilled cornice with adjoining houses.
