Rendering of project planned for 3831 Georgia Avenue
The Murillo Malnati Group (MMG) has plans on the boards for a six-story, 20-unit residential development on the site of Latney’s Funeral Home on Georgia Avenue. The new building would include approximately 1,488 square feet of ground floor retail with the residential units on floors two through six.
The developers of the project at 3831 Georgia Avenue NW (map) are looking for a variance from the off-street parking requirements.
“The site’s irregular, long, and narrow shape, small land area, sloping topography, and corner lot location create an exceptional condition that severely limits the ability to provide more than two on-site parking spaces,” documents filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment read. “The site’s small size and narrow dimensions also preclude the Applicant from providing below-grade parking spaces, since a minimum width of 60 feet is required in a parking garage to provide a row of parking spaces and associated drive aisles.”
Under zoning requirements, the development would normally require ten parking spaces. The architect for the project is Bonstra|Haresign.
