The Chapman Coal Company Garage and Stable is an important surviving building listed on the National Register of Historic Places, representing a significant contribution to the broad patterns of history, and embodying distinctive characteristics of early 20th century life in Washington, DC – a time when the automobile began to replace the horse and buggy as the common mode of transportation. Adapted from a coal yard and sales building, this once 103-horse stable and box factory turned automotive service and parking garage is thoughtfully reimagined and provides 114 affordable and market-rate apartments, including a modern five-story addition and underground parking.
