Expanded historic district – Financial Historic District

Financial Historic District
Formerly Fifteenth Street Financial Historic District
(Boundary Increase and Amendment)

The district was expanded north and west.

Fifteenth Street Financial Historic District amendment/expansion, Case 16-12.

The Board approved the amendment of the Fifteenth Street Financial Historic District designation as presented for listing in the D.C. Inventory of Historic Sites and for forwarding to the National Register of Historic Places.  The amendment includes 1) a boundary increase; 2) a name change to “Financial Historic District;” 3) an expanded Period of Significance; and 4) a more complete representation of the history and growth of the city’s financial district. The Board also requested that a technical revision to be made to a boundary line, as discussed at the hearing, be officially noticed, and then submitted to the Board for its approval at near future HPRB meeting.  Vote:  6-0.
