A new senior living community is on the boards for DC.
A five-story building is proposed for the currently vacant 2.8-acre site, delivering 155 apartments for households earning up to 60 percent of median family income. Amenities would include a "general store", kitchen and dining areas, an outdoor terrace, gym, and library. The building would also have a total of 49 parking spaces, including 19 surface parking spaces toward the front of the site.
The building is designed by E4H Architecture and would also have a rooftop solar array and a "pedestrian boardwalk" to Anacostia Park and Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens. Because the site is in the RA-2 zone, the development requires a variance for a height above what is by-right, and relief for continuing care retirement community usage.
A Zoning Commission hearing is scheduled for June.
